Contributing

We want your contributions! Our goal is for projectatomic.io to have everything you need in order to run, administer, build applications, or contribute to Atomic projects.

What follows is a guide to contributing content to the Project Atomic website.

Content We Want

We're looking for anything which relates to the various open source sub-projects of Atomic, or running Linux containers on Fedora, CentOS or RHEL. In general, all content should relate to open source technologies. This includes:

  • Fedora, Centos, and RHEL Atomic Host
  • Atomic Developer Bundle
  • Cockpit
  • OStree and RPM-OStree
  • Fedora Atomic Workstation
  • Running Docker and/or RunC on Fedora/CentOS/RHEL
  • Linux container technology and news

For all of the above, we are looking for blog posts, documentation, and technical guides. Please see below on how to write and contribute these. The approval process is also outlined below.

Style

  • Use Markdown* (which flavors are supported by our Middleman install?)
  • Use correct indentation levels for code blocks to support correct copy/paste w/o leading spaces (examples)

Blog posts

  • Fork this repo
  • Create a git branch for the blog post for clean merges
  • Blogs reside in the source/blog directory
  • Naming convention is date-title yyyy-mm-dd-this-is-a-blog
  • Create a pull request to submit for editorial review

Template

The header for the post should contain the following information, tags are a free form list. Your post will start immediately following the header. Add a 'READMORE' tag on a separate line to define at a good place to continue reading the full post.

Technical guides

  • Fork this repo
  • Create a git branch per document for clean merges
  • Pull and merge often
  • Create a pull request to submit for editorial review

Objective:

  • Provide overview of the guides objectives
  • What will a successful outcome look like
  • What will the reader learn from following the guide
  • How long should it take (rough order of magnitude, 15 mins, 30 mins, 2 hrs, etc)

Prerequisites:

Complete environment description and skills / understanding required before starting, include versions of packages as tested

  • Environment: Local host with virt provider, OpenStack, AWS, etc
  • Host OS: Version and variant if applicable (Fedora 21 Workstation, CentOS 7, etc)
  • Virtualization platform: QEMU, QEMU w/ VMM, VirtualBox, etc
  • Packages: any additional packages not explicitly installed during the guide

Guide:

The meat of the instruction set, lay out in some logical order, provide expected outputs where needed. Only provide enough detail as needed for the objectives, if more detail can be helpful to learn but not needed, link to an outside resource.

  • Provide copy/paste sections, make sure Markdown is correct for leading / trailing whitespace
