Release Notes Beats
Where the Beats are Written
Come help cover the relnotes beats at Docs/Beats .
Beat writers must be subscribed to the content flow mailing list.
What is a Beat?
A beat for a writer is a fixed area that you write about. For journalists, covering the proceedings of the local city council is a beat, as would the writer covering the local sporting events.
For the Fedora release notes, a beat covers an area of the release. This puts writers who are interested in a topic in direct contact with the developers of the software. Developers get to know who is their writer, and can send over information knowing it will be documented, visible, and highly available.
More information on the process is available at
