== Mission Statement ==
== Communication Channels ==
* '''Mailing List:''' For formal discussions, the Fedora Documentation Project uses the [ fedora-docs] mailing list.
* '''IRC:''' For informal discussions about Fedora Documentation, many members of the project frequent the '''#fedora-docs''' channel on ''''''.
* '''Meetings:''' Weekly Fedora Documentation Project meetings are held on Thursdays at 0001 UTC, in the '''#fedora-meeting''' channel on ''''''. Check out the [[Docs_Project_meetings| Meetings]] wiki page for past meetings minutes, and the agenda for the upcoming meeting.
== How we do it. ==
Documents typically begin life on the Fedora wiki.  This is to aid the development of the document until it can be finalized.  Unfinished documents are categorized as [[:Category:Draft_Documentation]].  Once the document is deemed complete, the Draft_Documentation category is replaced by the [[:Category:Documentation]] category.
If the documentation is deemed to be "official" and in need of a more permanent home, the wiki pages are translated into Docbook XML of which can then be used to generate HTML and RPM files that are used to disseminate to the public.  HTML files are published at and RPM files are published in the Fedora repository.
== What we are working on now. ==
=== Draft and Informal Documentation ===
The [ Fedora Wiki] is used to create [[:Category:Draft_Documentation | draft versions]] of documentation and also provides a place for [[:Category:Documentation | non-formal documentation]].
=== Formal Documentation ===
All [[Docs_Project_guides | formal documentation]] is located at [].  These guides are written in [[DocBook]] XML and compiled using [[Publican]].
We are working on a number of [[Docs Project guides | guides]] that aid users in setting up and using Fedora:
* Installation Guide
* Release Notes
* Security Guide
* SELinux Guide
* User Guide
* Deployment Guide
* RPM Guide
* Amateur Radio Guide
=== Bug Tickets ===
We use [ Red Hat's Bugzilla instance] for tracking issues and tasks within the Docs Project.  It is always helpful to provide input and patches to bugs.
You can [ query] [ Bugzilla] or use one of the following links to find tickets that are open:
* [ New tickets that have not been assigned].
* [ All tickets, new and assigned, that have not been closed].
== Documentation Licensing ==
All documentation produced by Fedora is released under the [ Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License 3.0 Unported License] :
== Miscellanea ==
The following pages collect notes, hints, and other bric-a-brac that would otherwise be lost to the vagaries of the list archive's "search" function.
* [[DocsProject/UsefulScripts| Useful scripts]]
Check the [[FAQ]]  on this wiki for general information on Fedora and links to other resources.
== Stuff ==
The central project workflow page is [[DocsProject/WorkFlow| DocsProject/WorkFlow]] .
