#54 Welcome to Fedora @masch
Opened 9 months ago by nasirhm. Modified 3 months ago

Hello @masch! 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! :)


Hello @nasirhm !

Thank you for the welcome, I've sent my presentation on the mail list. Let me know if it is OK.
I've mentioned on it that I made a very little contribution on downloading media writers links websites, I hope there will be more contributions!

As I mentioned in the email, I'm looking to contribute on Golang backend projects.

Let me know if I can do anything to find the best way to accomplish it.

Ok @masch, I've granted a FAS group temporary membership. In this way you are allowed to edit the wiki.

(Reference: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/fedora-join@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/GZL46S3GFX4XJ3XWP6V3SRBMHXPF2YC4/)

Thanks for the membership! @alciregi It was great to improve the wiki!
I hope that I could find some programming tasks to do more contributions!

I was going to reply to your comment on the neurofedora blog, but thought this ticket would be a better place.

Fedora, like all Linux distributions is "downstream". This means we don't develop all the software that we include in Fedora. We take software from "upstream" developers and build/package/test it to provide users with the Fedora artefacts. This is true for all of it---the kernel, drivers, all packages in Fedora.

Now, the package maintainers act as liaisons between the upstream developers and the Fedora community. They keep in touch with the developers. If a Fedora user files a bug on the bugzilla, the package maintainer first looks at it, and if required files a corresponding bug at the upstream bug tracker---github or whatever they use. Lots of package maintainers do more---they may be part of the upstream development team (lots of Red Hat folks help maintain the kernel, gcc, etc. in Fedora and are also part of the upstream development teams, for example). If they're not part of the upstream development team, they may still submit patches to fix bugs and so on.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Staying_close_to_upstream_projects

The only direct software development that the Fedora community does is related to community infrastructure---tools like the build system, the mailing lists, the badges system, FAS. Stuff that is required to enable the community to do its work.

NeuroFedora is just a small group of Fedora contributors, so all of this also applies to us. The only point that makes us "NeuroFedora" is that we're focused on neuroscience related software, not just general software for daily use. There are lots of SIGs in Fedora, including the Go SIG who do the same thing---they package/build/test Go software to make it available to Fedora users:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Go

So, if you are looking for programming tasks:

If you are looking to "code", find the upstream projects of the software that you use and see where you can help there. All contributions to upstream code will reach all downstream Linux distributions, so you'll still be helping Fedora.

I hope that helps a little.

Hello @masch,

How are you? How it is going?
Did you find something interesting? Do you have any question?

Hello @alciregi
Thank you for asking me.
In the last time, based on the great reply from ankursinha, I was trying to learn about the internal process on Fedora community work. I did a couple of questions on IRC's channels and I found wonderful help from the community.
But to be honest, I didn't find any particular task in order to contribute.
Maybe I should recap all the information that I got and ask you again about how I should continue  in order to get the next steps.
What do you think?

Hey @masch, 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.

Hanging out with folks can help obtain a lot of information on what has been going on in the community and ways to meaningfully contribute. I would suggest you take conversations on Matrix/IRC/Mailing list with the respective part of Fedora you are interested in and know more about them first (Not what they do, but how they do it :sweat_smile:)
