I talked to the FWN editors, who seem interested.
Aside from our conversations and a few with GDK
Yes I think Docs would be a great resource though I am hesitant to
introduce yet another project until after F11 release.
Fortunately, I bet that it won't be any actual work before F11
release. More coordination, getting on the publication calendar,
scope decisions, and that sort. In fact, we can stipulate that no one
can be made very available until after F11 is complete.
I remember the jolt of surprise and delight when I turned the page of
a Linux magazine and there was an article by you, David (on
BackupPC). I'd like to see much more of that from our community. :)
