I'm a 35 year old guy from Norway.I've worked in different areas of the
IT industry since 1995, focusing mainly on networking, server
management and computer security. I started working with NT 3.5 servers
and workstations, and after a while I started getting interested in the
Linux operating system. I started using Debian because that was the os
installed on the company's servers. When configuring new servers I
chose Redhat, and began getting comfortable with that.
I've used Redhat to run various firewalls and mail scanners and set up
RH with basic networking and file services as well. I've set up routing
and networking using Redhat and HP ProLiant switches.
I've also worked as an instructor on TCP/IP and computer security.
I've done some programming using C, Python and C#.
Nowadays I use Fedora for my desktop, mainly because it focuses on the
latest innovation for the Linux computing environment.
I've skimmed through some of the code for systemd, and I find this
innovation especially appealing.
I would like to document it for the Fedora docs project, together with
someone else with the same interest!
I will start writing about it these days, but I haven't gotten up to
speed with the Docbook and Publican parts yet, so I'll just start
writing plain text in Emacs...
So that was my introduction, hope to get to know you guys better!
All the best

First I would like to apologize for my absents. I overloaded my self
with moving, a new job, and a new child and Fedora stuff fell off my
plate because of it.
I am no longer to attend a meeting on Wed nights due to other
engagements, and Sparks had recommended that we try to find another
date again, here we are

Presumably it is in limbo.

Subject: Introduction / Stephen in Brno
My name is Stephen, Capesteve on IRC, I have recently moved to Brno from London.
I was working as a CCNA instructor last year in London and my
background before that is technical sales.
I am teaching myself to be a technical author and trying to learn a
little XML. A friend at Red Hat Brno suggested I lurk on your IRC
discussion to learn more about writing documents, what is needed etc.
My main interests are networking, WiFi and IT security. Have used
virtualisation a bit in my Cisco studies.
Been using Ubuntu for my desktop and laptop the last four years but
thinking of changing as I don't like the constant cosmetic changes.
Thinking to use 64bit Fedora for desktop and maybe something
lightweight for my old Thinkpad.
I have used Centos as part of my VoIP studies.
Interested to learn more about virtulisation, security, high
availability....low level stuff
ciao for now

Welcome to the Docs Project! As John (jjmcd) said, if you just get some plain-
text documentation down, that's a great start. Personally, I find it much
easier to "just write," then later fuss over details of phrasing and
formatting--and this is the recommendation found somewhere on the wiki, too!
As for integrating cgroups with systemd, I'm not qualified for an opinion, but
I would say that you should write the documentation that you would want to
read. More importantly, we can spend months discussing which way would be the
best, or you can write something, and we can spend 5 minutes deciding whether
to make revisions. You were probably looking for more solid advice, so you
might try contacting whoever is responsible for Systemd in Fedora?
Remember: nothing in Fedora is final for longer than 6 months.

I am interested in joining the fedora project's documentation team. I am a
networking professional (TCP/IP) and do not have much experience with Linux;
although I do intend to change that, as I am currently an undergraduate CS
I am not sure where to start, some guidance would be appreciated.
I'm very tempted to join the systemd and cgroups functionality in my

But then again, it would possibly be better separated into distinct
sections for the sake of clarity?
This is really just brainstorming, but if someone agrees please let me
I think I'll just write about systemd first, then give some examples of
how the two can play together...
