You've come to the right place, Dan!  It never hurts to have experience
putting up a Web site of your own, but you can also have some very
immediate impact by helping John Babich out with the Desktop User Guide,
or Bart Couvreur with the Administration Guide.

I'd like to remind everyone to reach out for these folks using the
fedora-docs-list here, rather than emailing privately.  Fedora is a
project that takes openness and transparency very seriously, and it's
also very helpful (and empowering!) for lurking readers to see your
conversation, issues, problems, and answers.

Please let us know if you have any quesetions.  You'll find a lot of
what you need at:
