Fedora launches community knowledge base
Following the recent release of Fedora 16, the Fedora Project has announced the launch of its new Ask Fedora community knowledge base and support forums. Fedora's Rahul Sundaram said that "The goal of Ask Fedora is to be the best place for community support in Fedora and integrate tightly with the rest of the Fedora infrastructure".
The new site is powered by Askbot, an open source Q&A forum written in Python and Django, which allows community members to ask and answer other users' questions related to Fedora. Before Ask Fedora, the three primary resources for users were the project's IRC channel (#fedora in irc.freenode.net), the mailing lists and FedoraForum.
Users can sign into Ask Fedora using their Fedora identity or any OpenID, including those from Google or WordPress. Information on how to participate can be found in the Ask Fedora FAQ and on the Ask Fedora wiki.
