Mike, welcome back! I've been really busy at my $DAYJOB as well.

Great stuff - I just upgraded in the past few days. Fedora gets better all the
time. Suspend/resume works beautifully now.

Short answer: No.

Long answer:

There's been great progress on the Admin Guide, none of it coming
from me. :-)

As lead writer of the FDUG (FUG seems to have too many bad
connotations), the FDUG can really use some great contributions.

It may not be as interesting to write as the AG, but the FDUG is,
in some ways, more crucial to getting new users up-to-speed on
the Fedora Desktop.

The KDE-SIG team agrees with me. They see a need for an FDUG that
covers KDE apps on equal footing with GNOME apps.

Xfce should also be covered, especially with an XFCE spin in the

To sum up:

1. The GNOME section (the current doc) needs some minor fixes,
   i.e., Pidgin => Gaim

2. The KDE section needs to be added and integrated into the FDUG.

3. Xfce section is something needed in the near future.

Mark, so keep an eye on the FDUG and pitch in as much as you can.
