From Fedora Project Wiki

This page is a draft only
It is still under construction and content may change. Do not rely on the information on this page.

This page/namespace is for tracking ideas, structure, and planning around a single Fedora Handbook that is comprised of multiple, modular documents drawn from the Wiki.


  • Our plan should be able to handle content addressed at all levels, but this "Experienced computer user who knows what they want to do but who is knew to Fedora" is a good place to start. (KarstenWade)
  • Be able to build it as PDF to be printable. A good candidate for the FreeMedia program.
  • Easy, chapter-modular maintenance.
  • Screenshots (avoid need to update them with each release)
