Re: Fedora Installation Guide writer opening


Earlier i posted saying i too would like to be involved in writing this guide. I have had much experience, as has been written in my self-intro ages ago. I lurk, and am still keeping note of changes with the Games wikis that i edit, though time has been short recently with studies at uni, being with my wife, making money, and trying to develop my writing, by doing articles for publication.

I know Rahul submitted my FC6 Test 1 review to Fedora Weekly News (FWN). I have been keen to do some writing, but lack the technical aspect of the writing. I can review and do technical install guides, and one need only look at my ndiswrapper wireless guide (yes, yes i know it is taboo and forbidden on fedora-docs hence not published), which will be submitted soon to fedora unity project. In short i am a writer of many small articles, over 75 to be precise, inc technical, and freelance pieces.

I am really interested in doing a lot more work. I may be appearing to be one of the 95% of 600+ people who dont get involved, but i am not. I didnt really get on with cvs much, as i didnt understand its usage, as those who helped when i first joined are painfully aware (Karsten, Paul, etc). I am however keen and active as work allows, and to learn all i need to in order to be an active writer/editor. Please accept this as an offer to do the writing. Any editor who is willing to help refine my work to technical docs standard, please guide me. Below i have just outlined my technical background, just for those wishing to see if i am right for such a project.

Karsten, consider me a part of the team, or not, but i do wish to work and be involved in both writing and wiki editing. I shall hope to devote more time to this good project.

* 75-odd articles published, inc 50+ for magazines, and newspapers, (Seen, UNique, Northampton Union Times, ADDNews, Student Voice, Credenhill Parish News, Poetry Week) and 25 technical articles, some self published under GPL/OPL, on www.manix-place.co.uk, and www.2welshmen and a sheep.co.uk, Fedora Weekly News, and Fedorazine * proficient and skilled in Access databases, OpenOffice.org, MS Office, Visual Basic 6.0, Visual Basic .Net, Visual C++ ver 6.0 (VS 6.0), Visual C++ .Net, C++, HTML and aspects of Perl. * Blog writer, political commentator, and citizen journalist with strong writing background * Linux user (#417406) using Fedora Core 5, SuSE Linux 10.1, Ubuntu 6.06, and tester of Fedora Core 6, with registered bugzilla account * Active user on fedoraforum.org, with lots of technical knowedge learned and passed on again
