# Read the information sources for your beat. Usually, this will be a team's mailing list archives and meeting logs.
# Decide what are the 1-5 important things that have happened in your beat's area of focus during the past week that everyone in the Fedora community should know.
# Write up a summary of those important things in (look at the table above for a list of current beats). Looking at the pages for other beats should give you an idea of formatting, writing style, length, and how to link in references.
# Edit the table in so that the entry for the section you just wrote reads "COMPLETE" instead of "incomplete."
# Email the Fedora news list ( and let us all know you're done.
