Thank you for joining us.  Fedora is very interested in being both
upstream and downstream providers of content.  In the downstream case,
we want to contribute in meaningful ways back up to common documentation
bases.  Right now we can do that by e.g. editing documentation from
upstream.  We are not actively doing this as a group, but could be.
Tools would help here.

As upstream providers, we want to provide a common Fedora documentation
base that can be reused for Fedora derivatives.  Additionally, we are
providing a Fedora-based toolchain that is a full documentation editing
system (SCM + Wiki + XML + CMS) ... doing that one piece at a time.

This sounds compatible with your ideas and activities, perhaps?

Cheers - Karsten
