Several weeks ago, I wrote to this list while seeking mentors for a
project with Fedora Summer Coding 2010.  I'm pleased to let you know
that my proposal was accepted, and that an official "Musicians' Guide"
is in the works for Fedora 14!

As part of the writing process, I hope to put the document through an
extensive program of testing and proof-reading.  While development is
currently just beginning, some algorithms already exist for the
tutorials, and they are scheduled to be completed by the end of next
week.  It will be very important to try to catch problems early on,
especially in the tutorials covering less popular software (because it
will have less existing documentation), and in the tutorials covering
"system optimization" (discussing the removal of PulseAudio, compilation
of realtime-enabled kernels, and so on).

If you would like to volunteer your help, please drop by the project's
Trac page, which has further information, and links to draft
documentation (through "Topics and Development").  This page will be
updated regularly, as devleopment progresses.


This is an exciting project, and a great opportunity not only for
myself, but for the Fedora community, to show off the advanced
capabilities of the distribution.

Christopher Antila.
