Project Name: Ask Fedora

Target Audience: End users

Expiration/Delivery Date (required): Oct 25th (Fedora 16 launch date)


Ask Fedora is my plan to create a support portal running in http://ask.fedoraproject.org. Ask Fedora is powered by Askbot (http://askbot.org), a question and answer oriented forum (with support for wiki like features and more) in a similar style to Stack Overflow or Yahoo Answers.

Project plan (Detailed):

I have blogged earlier about all the details at


Goals: To serve as the primary place for end user support in Fedora and provide a method of building a well maintained and active knowledge base.

I've created:

  • a sysadmin-ask group with you guys (and me) in it.

  • a ask01.dev.fedoraproject.org instance to use for your development/testing.

Please let me know if you need anything further at this time, or when everything is installed and ready for some more widespread testing. ;)

ask is now in production (although not yet formally announced), so I am going to go ahead and close this.
