Great.  We're using DocBook v.4.4.  In many cases, work is done on the
Wiki, then converted to XML for final edit, translation, and publishing.

Are you interested in writing, in English or in Italian?  We can work
with documents in any language, as long as there are enough native
speakers who can help edit per Fedora Documentation standards.

We currently have an Installation Guide, and the Fedora 7 version is in
the very final draft.  You can obtain it easily from here:

Paul put up a link to a tarball of the full XML source.  There is just
enough time for you to read and provide any comments back; you can send
them to this list.

Do you have other interests in documenting?  User or administrator
guides?  How-to use specific tools?  Live CD, custom spins, or other

Over this week we are working to fix up the tasks page:

Watch this list for an announcement that the task list is ready for peer
review, etc.
