Rocky Linux Summer of Docs 2024

Project: Desktop User Documentation Enhancement

Our first Rocky Linux (RL) Summer of Docs initiative aims to create a new documentation category for Enterprise Linux Desktop Users.

Inspired by the highly esteemed and eponymous Google Season of Docs project, this project aims to fill a gap in the current RL documentation.

By developing comprehensive, user-friendly, and multilingual desktop user guides, we can expand RL's user base and improve its usability. This will make Rocky Linux more appealing to a wider audience and strengthen its position in the enterprise Linux market.
