Re: Fedora Magazine - articles in a wider variety of langugages

Awesome that there is interest in translating.

Original language community specific articles would also be great, eg.
Fedora resources for new users in Russian, Mandarin, French etc.

Hugo should be able to work with GitLab Pages ( ) and/or GitHub Pages ( ) Is one of
these a reasonable place to put the first iteration? If not, where and
how would the automation take place? I can create a theme similar to
the one for the current magazine.

Information on editorial role is at:

Information on writing workflow is at:

Wordpress seems to have plugins that make suggestions for improving
search engine optimization for English. May need to look for
alternatives to these.
