Default SOP creation made easier

Since we were directly inspired to create the Marketing SOPs by seeing
how much good it's done Infrastructure to have them, I thought I'd share
some back - we made a template and a SOP for making SOPs to make the
SOP-generation process itself easier on folks who might not want to
spend a lot of time on wiki editing.


https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Creating_a_Marketing_SOP
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Template:Marketing_SOP

They're both marketing-specific at the moment, but could be cloned for
Infrastructure in a few minutes.


Another way to make it even easier to make SOPs would be to use
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:InputBox, which would give you a
text field with a button next to it; if you type a title into the text
field and hit the button, it throws you straight into the Edit page for
a new page with that title, with a template you prespecify already in
there. If someone wants to implement that extension, I'd be happy to do
the wiki work needed to document/use it for various types of
pages-that-should-be-easy-to-create once the extension is installed.

One of the projects we have between now and Alpha is to document how to
create each of our primary release deliverables in the form of a SOP[0].

You can see our current SOPs here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:Marketing_SOPs#How_to_contribute. Some


are more polished than others.

Of course, I had to start by making a SOP on how to make SOPs.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Creating_a_Marketing_SOP

It makes use of the (also new) Marketing SOP template,
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Template:Marketing_SOP. That template is
meant to be a suggestion/aide to make life easier, so don't feel
compelled to stick to it if you think a different format will work
better for you.

[0] Standard Operating Procedure - we used to call them "HOWTOs," but I
switched the term to be more consistent with the terminology other teams
use (specifically,
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:Infrastructure_SOPs). The HOWTO
pages have been redirected/recategorized to reflect this.

Cool beans. Once this settles down a bit, I would be happy to work
with you on this.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven for?
