#216 Welcome to Fedora sukeerti!
Opened 4 months ago by alciregi. Modified 4 months ago

Hello @sukeerti! 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.

These links are a good read to begin with. 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:

Next, when you're ready, 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)

Finally, could you let us know how you learned about the Fedora project? Was it
from a colleague, or social media, for example?

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

Hello @sukeerti
So you are interested in QA.
Testing stuff is always welcome. It could help identifying issues before they affect many users.
Here https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/qa-docs/ you can find some information.
Feel free to ask your questions in this ticket if you don't feel comfortable asking directly to the QA team.

Hello,

I have gone through the document link that had been shared above.=20

We don't really assign issues to each other because there's no real hierarchy in the community. We're all just equals and colleagues, and we take up tasks that we think we can help with, and that interest us. That's the idea behind giving you all the links in the first post. Have you gone through them yet? Do you understand what Fedora does and how/why we do it?

In general, how we go about "contributing" is that we keep up with the discussions of the team that we are interested in, and as we learn, we start to participate in the discussion and take up any tasks that may crop up and we think we can do.

So:

  • have you joined the QA team's communication channels? (mailing list/discourse/chat on Matrix)?
  • you should introduce yourself to the QA team also, if you haven't already

Next, do you understand what the document Alessio linked to, especially this section?

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/qa-docs/#_what_are_you_looking_to_do

If not, you should re-read it and ask any questions here or on the QA team's channels. Then you'll have a better understanding of what each task is, and how to go about it.

Well, I have mailed to the test mailing list which is the main mailing list f=
or QA project twice and I didn=E2=80=99t get any response from their side.

I see your e-mail from yesterday here, but I also see lots of system
notifications, so it's probably got buried in all them.

https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/test@lists.fedoraproject.org/

As the link here says, you need to see when the next on-boarding call is
and attend it. (It isn't possible for the few people to notify others
individually, but there will be an announcement on the list, so you need
to wait for that):

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Join#Attend_an_Onboarding_Call

However, it is not mandatory to attend an onboarding call in order to contribute.
(For the records, there is not a strict schedule for these sessions, indeed there is roughly one session per year).
I don't remember if there are recorded sessions on the Fedora youtube channel. Btw, onboarding calls cover topics you can read in the QA documentation.
