+ 

+ = Join Community Operations

+ 

+ Become a member of Fedora Community Operations (CommOps) by following these steps.

+ 

+ 

+ [[fas]]

+ == Create a FAS account

+ 

+ Create a {FWIKI}Account_System[Fedora Account System account] and sign the {FWIKI}Legal:Fedora_Project_Contributor_Agreement[Fedora Project Contributor Agreement].

+ Do this through the {FWIKI}Infrastructure/AccountSystem[Fedora Account System].

+ 

+ 

+ [[mailing-list]]

+ == Join the mailing list

+ 

+ Subscribe to the https://lists.fedoraproject.org/admin/lists/commops.lists.fedoraproject.org[Fedora CommOps mailing list] to receive email discussion by the team.

+ The mailing list receives low to medium volume.

+ 

+ The mailing list is a key part to how we communicate.

+ News, updates, and discussion are shared through our mailing list.

+ 

+ 

+ [[introduction]]

+ == Send a self-introduction

+ 

+ Say hello and introduce yourself to the team!

+ Send a self-introduction to the mailing list and tell us a little about yourself (click mailto:commops@fedoraproject.org[here, Self-Introduction: your name here] to send an intro).

+ 

+ Not sure what to say?

+ Answer some of these questions to get started:

+ 

+ * Why are you interested in contributing to Fedora?

+ * Why are you interested in contributing to CommOps?

+ * If you're involved with other things in Fedora, what are/were you working on?

+ * Do you have any experience in open source or online communities? If so, what?

+ * What parts of CommOps were interesting to you?

+ * Do you have any questions for us? How can we help _you_ get started?

+ 

+ 

+ [[community-blog]]

+ == Register on Community Blog

+ 

+ The Fedora https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org[Community Blog] is a key component to CommOps.

+ An account gives permissions to view article drafts and previews before they are published.

+ If you ever write an article, you will need an account.

+ To register, log in at the https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/wp-login.php[login page] with your Fedora Account System (FAS) credentials.

+ 

+ Need more help logging in?

+ Read the https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/how-to-log-in/[help page] for more detailed instructions.

+ 

+ 

+ [[irc]]

+ == Join our IRC channel

+ 

+ Fedora uses the https://freenode.net[Freenode IRC network] for instant messaging and communication.

+ Short discussions and planning happen in our IRC channel.

+ Our weekly team meetings also take place on IRC.

+ 

+ Never used IRC before?

+ See the https://fedoramagazine.org/beginners-guide-irc/[Beginner's Guide to IRC] on the Fedora Magazine.

+ If you want to stay connected even when you are not online, consider https://opensource.com/article/17/5/introducing-riot-IRC[using Riot] as your IRC client.

+ 

+ 

+ [[first-steps]]

+ == Make your first steps

+ 

+ See link::contribute/join.adoc[Make your first steps in Fedora] for more info.

+ 

+ 

+ [[start-task]]

+ == Start on a task

+ 

+ CommOps uses https://pagure.io/fedora-commops[this Pagure repository] to track our tasks and what we're working on.

+ Tasks, problems, and goals are filed as tickets in the https://pagure.io/fedora-commops/issues[issue tracker].

+ There are a lot of tickets, but we're not working on everything at once.

+ Scrolling through the issue tracker gives a good idea of what CommOps helps with.

+ 

+ Look for the https://pagure.io/fedora-commops/issues?status=Open&tags=good+first+issue[good first issue] tag on tickets to find good tasks for beginners.

+ 

+ Does something look interesting?

+ Leave a comment if you have a question or want to work on something.

+ Also check and see if the ticket has an owner.

+ If there is no owner, you can take lead on it!

+ If there is, ask if the owner needs help or if they are still working on the ticket.

+ 

+ This provides you an opportunity to receive mentorship and get help to start a new task.

+ 

+ 

+ [[meetings]]

+ == Join our meetings

+ 

+ CommOps has an IRC team meeting each week.

+ In our meeting, the team discusses items on our agenda and checks in on any progress of current tasks.

+ Tickets selected for meetings are updated after the meeting with new information.

+ 

+ The meetings are open to the public and anyone can join.

+ See when our meetings are in your time zone on the https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar/commops/[CommOps meeting calendar].

+ Feel free to attend and introduce yourself during roll call!

Finally, it's done! This PR closes #122.

This is an updated version of our CommOps/Join page. I also updated the instructions to be more accurate for how we're running things in 2018 (it was last given a serious review in 2016).

Once we figure out how this deploys and builds tomorrow, I'll set up a permanent redirect on the wiki page to point to the doc.
