#37 Welcome to Fedora @jtagcat
Closed: C: Complete a year ago by t0xic0der. Opened 2 years ago by nasirhm.

Hello jtagcat! 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 given @jtagcat temporary membership since they wanted to update pages on the wiki. Thanks for that @jtagcat .

I read https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora#Workflow%20Summary

Not sure, how I can interact with tags (do I have the permissions?).

Not sure if you can, Is there anything that i can help with ?

About C: Temporary membership approved: I think I'm coming in with permanent membership.

I believe I should also have the S: Subscribed tag.

Hey @jtagcat , It's been quite sometime we've heard from you, We hope you're doing good.
Did you find something interesting to work on and cooperate on ?

P.S: I'm marking the ticket as Progress Check 1.

No, I did not find anything to work on really. I have worked on other things, and haven't noticed anything interesting enough to go 'I want to do this' with Fedora.

Have you subscribed to the Join Mailing list ?

Yes, but

realized, that I have never encountered the amount of mail you get from an actual mailing list, and that I know less of Thunderbird than I thought; resulting in about 1-4 mail threads read/ignored/seen per week.

I think it comes down to lack of detailed (haven't explored) interest (and time, what I will probably never have spare of again) at the moment.

I have never felt the amount of information I should/am interested in absorbing; stuff I could do, put together, fix. Overwhelmed in short.

hugs thanks for doing this, checking in on people, but I don't even have any help to give back (on what I'm interested in (I don't know, many things, probably things I have never heard of), I don't yet have a native coding lang, on what I could do stuff in, just pieces from stuff like batch, powershell; to go; to js; to rust; to python; to bash..).

I wouldn't worry too much @jtagcat . The whole idea here is for you to take your time.

The mailing lists do get overwhelming: over the ~10 years that I've been around, I've managed to subscribe to almost ~40 of them! Now I've learned how to skim really quickly and skip topics that aren't relevant :)

So, take your time. It's best to just hang out on the channels and mailing lists, and wait till you see something to work on or just pitch in.

Keep an eye on these too, maybe there'll be something that you find interesting:

Please do link to (write) a blog post.

There's no right way of going about it, it's just practice I'm afraid :)

The only tip I can give is to use filters well, and to use a good e-mail client that allows threading.

Hello @jtagcat
I'm going through the welcome-to-fedora tickets.
This ticket is not updated since a couple of months.
How it is going?

I can keep up with mailing lists.

I moved my workstation to Manjaro 2 months ago.

I'm pretty much a lost cause at this point. No activity.

Hey @jtagcat, it has been a while since we have heard from you. How is it going? Did you find anything interesting to work on? Also, should you have questions or queries - feel free to comment under this ticket and we'd be pleased to answer.

Please note that this is the final progress check we are making from our end - failing to respond to in seven days of which - we would close this ticket. Don't worry though - we understand that there can be circumstances due to which you are unable to devote time but you can come back later too and continue contributing from wherever you left off.

(Come on, you are not a lost cause. Just give it some time to hang out with folks at Matrix/IRC related to the projects you are interested in and you'd discover - albeit slowly - there are ways in which you can meaningfully contribute to Fedora)

Eh.. I've moved on from pretty much everything to do with Fedora. I guess the ticket can be closed.
