#135 Welcome @the0val
Opened 9 months ago by andilinux. Modified 4 months ago

Hello @the0val ! Welcome to Fedora!

Before we begin, please subscribe to the Fedora join mailing list at
fedora-join@lists.fedoraproject.org
.
We use this list for general discussion, and it is also where the community
shares tasks that need help.

Then, could you please introduce yourself (preferably on the list) so that the
community can get to know you? (interests, skills, anything you wish to say
about yourself really)

In the meantime, these links would be a good read. They tell you what the
Free/Open Source community is about, and then they'll introduce you to Fedora:
what Fedora is all about, and what we do, and of course, how we do it:

If you have any questions at all, please ask! We'll use this ticket to keep in
touch! :)

I've been hanging around the Fedora community on Discord, Matrix and Discourse but I haven't made a commitment to any specific task or team yet. Ideally I'd like to do something that involves programming or infrastructure but I don't know what a good first step would be.

Infrastructure requires a lot of commitment IMHO. However did you read these links?
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/GettingStarted
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure_Apprentice
https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issues

Maybe you could also look at https://github.com/fedora-infra
And look for issues and bugs. And submit patches or suggestions if you are interested in programming.

About programming, you know, Fedora Linux is a collection of software developed upstream. Maybe you could contribute to some software. Or look for a software you would like included in the Fedora repository and work in order to package it.
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/creating-rpm-packages/
Also playing with COPR is a funny exercise.

In any case don't worry. Hanging around the Fedora community is also a way to keep the community alive and to learn new things :-) Maybe a day you will find something really engaging.

Ah! Recently I played with Flatpaks/Flathub [1]. It is not strictly related to Fedora, but Fedora benefits from it.
I found building a Flatpak really engaging. Sadly I'm not a developer, so I struggled a lot, and I have limited time to spend on these things, but it was funny. Maybe if you would like to package an application this is a good topic and if you have programming skills, you have an advantage.

Thanks for these suggestions! I will look for some upstream projects where I can do some with programming.
