We'll find some way to thank her. :-)

Very good draft.  You may find our StyleGuide useful for matching the
voice of this page to other official FDP work:

That's a good skill to have around these parts.  We need more writers
and editors in general.  If you're able to be around during a workday
at all, stop by IRC Freenode at #fedora-docs and introduce yourself
there.  We need some help wordsmithing the Desktop User Guide -- two
different releases, in fact, for F8 and F9 -- so that may be a good
way to get started.  Right now it only involves wiki editing IIRC.
