I contacted Eric Christensen prior to setting myself up here, and
submitted a first cut of a small addition to the CryptoGuide. It
basically goes over using encrypted 7-Zip archives as an easy "portable"
encryption solution. I still want to polish it and dress it up for the
wiki, but I think its a good example of my work.
Very good draft. You may find our StyleGuide useful for matching the
voice of this page to other official FDP work:
I also find I can be good at catching "little" things in
documentation - like how the "SelfIntroduction" wiki page references a
totally different PGP keyserver then the "CreatingKeys" page. I have no
idea where this ability comes from, so Mom's off the hook here :).
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.
Thanks for your time!
Thanks for volunteering yours! :-)
