Hi Miles.  I took a quick look at your extensive (and commendable!)
work, and had the following constructive observations:

1.  The document is licensed as CC BY-NC-SA, so you would need to
relicense it as OPL 1.0 [2] for the Fedora Documentation Project to use

2.  The document would benefit from style editing.  If you are
interested in improving the readability of your document, check a good
style manual, or even a simple Linux community one like the GNOME
Documentation Style Guidelines [1].  If you join the FDP and relicense
the doc for use here, I would be happy to work with you on this.

3.  I would be inclined to drop the chapter on installation, since it
substantially duplicates what's already in our official Installation
Guide.  (Suggestions for improvements to the IG are, as always,
gratefully accepted, filed as bugs in Bugzilla.)

This doc would also benefit from some technical input from additional
community members.  I saw a number of opportunities for clarifications
and corrections during my brief skimming of a couple of chapters.  If
you are interested in bringing this doc into FDP, we'd love to have you

Please take a look at:


...for a checklist on where to start.  If you need any help, this list
is the right place to post, or come to IRC #fedora-docs where there are
usually several contributors at any point during the day or night.
