The proposed link:
links to section 2.1.3 "Create a Fedora Account".
Or do you recommend the following link for the same target?

Your proposal is easier to read. I will use it.
To explain why non-packager have to use remote pull-requests, instead of
forking on src.fedoraproject.org, I would append something like:
Any repos on https://src.fedoraproject.org, including forks, are read-only for
non-packager. Only packager can write.
It is being worked on that forks will be writable for non-packager.

As far as I remember that is what puiterwijk wrote in the IRC channel.
Due to read-only forks for non-packager on src.fedoraproject.org the code must
be hosted on a remote git repo and a remote pull-requests must be used.
I assume puiterwijk meant that in the future forks on src.fedoraproject.org
will be writable for non-packager.

Thank you for your support and help. :)

In my FAS account one group reads "wikiedit (user)".
I requested that membership in order to fix a wrong command in a SSSD or
FreeIPA testcase in the wiki during Fedora 26 branching as far as I remember.
