What happens if someone wants to use Fedora, but they don't know how
to do task [x], so they want task [x] documented. Is the docs project
responsible for this, or should the person learn how to do this
themselves?

If I ever figure out what they want from BZ #435599, I'll try to
figure out how it works on Fedora...although it's always a pain trying
to rewrite because of the "Copyright (c) 2008 Red Hat, Inc. All rights
reserved." ;)

It would be good if this could be done for the Deployment Guide, and
then copied straight onto the Fedora wiki...

Cheers,

Murray.
