thanks for editing and posting my first article about projects in Copr, I really like it :)
I have written a draft for a new article and it would be cool to publish it next week so the articles can come out every other week.
I'm a CS teaching assistant from University of Tartu, Estonia. I recently submitted my dearest project Thonny (Python IDE for beginners, http://thonny.org) into Fedora repository. Miro Hrončok, who helped me with this, suggested me to write an introduction to Thonny for Fedora Magazine. So here I am, eager to write a pitch and receive your input :)
I would like to write the following article:
Summary: Getting started with V-rep Robotic Simulator in Fedora
Description: This article aims at giving the reader an overview of how to
get started with V-rep Simulator on Fedora.
>> The step-to-step guide to installing V-rep.
I plan to write a second article following this that would explain about
dependencies, etc and working with V-rep using any language on fedora
>> Features, and dependencies of V-rep
>> Working with V-rep
I have drafted my idea here. Please review the same.
In looking at help forums, I often see questions from people coming
from the most popular Debian-based distribution. Since the Debian world
does a lot of things differently, it's common to see:
* How do I apt-get install things?
* Where are the logs?
* How do I get sudo access?
* How do I configure networking
I think an article targetting these users would be useful. (Being
careful, of course, to not make it antagonistic or hostile to our
friendly rivals from Canonical.)
Fedora Project Leader
We are looking for interested people who are willing to write docs in person for one week. You don't have to be an existing docs team member to participate. It helps if you're familiar with AsciiDoc, but if you're not, it's easy to learn.
You'll hang out with other people interested in making Fedora documentation the best in the world. Fun will be had, but mostly it will be the sort of fun which involves sitting in a small room intensely focused on writing and editing. If that's *your* idea of a good time, this will be a good experience for you.
You can find details about the FAD, including the goals here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAD_Documentation_2018
The Fedora Council has approved funding and we will make selections based on the ability to the person asking and within our approved travel budget. https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/174
Interested? Open a Pagure ticket in the Fedora Docs tracker here: https://pagure.io/fedora-docs
- Your Name/FAS
- Why you want to come and what your background in writing (of any kind) is.
- Any specific areas of interest
- Location you will travel from
We will start picking people ASAP.
