The link to the SSO is quite long and difficult to remember. But an easy way to remember is gitlab.com/fedora.
On this page just use the link after the introduction of Fedora Gitlab Workspace https://gitlab.com/groups/fedora/-/saml/sso
Why does Fedora not use a Wiki for the documentation?
Why not Wiki
In the past Fedora used a Wiki page to do the Documentations. There are still some over lefts of it. The reason why, are automation tools who got set up with the Wiki application to document the change-log of ongoing Fedora versions as an example.
In the meantime the up to date change-logs can be found: https://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/36/ChangeSet to navigate to an older or newer version you can just replace the version number within 20 to 38 (on the time this FAQ was written)
Welcome Documentation Team and all other Fedorians.
I made a small FAQ to find important information in a fast way, for users who can’t wait, to help with the documentation. And also especially for users who complain that the documentation is not up do date.
Would like to know if this is useful? Are there some more suggestions of questions we could ad?
Some information I added with question-marks … there I need some more explanations.
I made it for the documentation because I would like to get into it. I’m quite overwhelmed with all the information, so i made me a short-cut to get in to it
Since I do participate especially on ask. I often was reading that the documentation is outdated and a lot is missing. Meany people do not really know how much work it is involved and that a lot of help is needed. For this users I do have now a link, that they can get on a fast way more information.
I think, it is really a great start! And I would like to include it in the Fedora documentation as soon as possible.
Where do you think we can include it? I think we could include it on the Fedora Linux docs homepage (Fedora Linux User Documentation :: Fedora Docs) as a section before “Getting help”. I don’t know if we can use ‘Accordions’ with the Fedora Antorra GUI set, @darknao do you know (well, I’m sure you know)?
Welcome to the team. Probably you might start to participate on our weekly meeting (Wednesday, 18:30 UTC #fedora-meeting-1).
That’s pretty handy plus good timing. I’ve been reading the board for the past few days wondering how Documentation works and searching the web on how to even write documentation. I’d like to help out, your FAQ is appreciated.
We have a docs team page Fedora Documentation Team :: Fedora Docs where we try to explain, how we work and how to start contribution. As you will see, it’s still under development and far from being perfect. Some planned items are still without text / links.
Please, join our weekly IRC / matrix meeting. And please, provide some information what you are missing. I plan to resume some work on the team page as soon as F37 is released and all necessary documentation is updated (I still have to update some Fedora Server documentation, too).
This would also unify the links to the two Matrix channels.
It might be also noted that both channels (docs + meeting-1) are bridged (so, each of the two channels has a bridge between its Matrix and its IRC instance): users have the free choice to use IRC or Matrix in both cases. And with Matrix, they can use an app or the web version of https://fedora.im / https://chat.fedoraproject.org (the first is only a redirection to the latter). So, just to avoid the impression that there are two different Docs channels:
You can use the date/time formatting option available like this: 2022-11-09T18:30:00Z
It will show the time in the correct time zone for everyone, and even automatically change the date to the next meeting.
