Hi Fabian, 

Thanks for your reply. 

Could you please direct me to the person who could give me the rights to add our books? 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

The Fedora team is working on moving away from docbook and xml to 
asciidoc. This is a more straightforward approach in the file, with a 
reasonably easy syntax to learn. This will let us keep docs in git so 
that users who find something and want to fix it can simply submit a 
pull request or patch to update and someone responsible can approve or 
deny it. 

In the future, it means that non-wiki docs should be easily consumable 
and editable. That doesn't help us for the current state of 
documentation, but it does help to resolve things for the future. I'm 
still working on the state of the existing docs via a few contacts I 
made at the docs day.

Just reading that again and it seems that /Books already has links to 
other books, so I guess that the centos-docs team is ok with that. 
If so, someone can probably give you rights to add your books there.
