An answer for a question from IRC:
18:18 < subdivisions> hey all... anyone here know the best way to do editing/authoring
offline? I have approx 2.5 hours a day on the train and I can't
really get a cell signal.
18:18 < subdivisions> I can cut-andpaste from and back to the wiwki, but that seems a bit
Keith, let me introduce you to DocBook XML.
What you need for the train is the following:
* Checkout one or more guides to work on:
Software Management Guide
Security Guide (needs conversion)
* Obtain XML output from the wiki ready for conversion
* Check out the build system/toolchain for Fedora Docs, and/or
* Install 'publican' (candidate for inclusion in toolchain)
* Optional virtualization instance to do install testing or other
You have everything you need in a Fedora install with the "Authoring and
Publishing" group installed.
While you are offline, keep notes about any troubles you have. Maybe
write them as a blog entry to post when you get to your destination.
Writing about your learning process and experience as a new contributor
could bring some value and definitely interest.
Just a few ideas off the top of my head. :)
