My name is Ashray V and I am from India (GMT:5:30+ Asia Kolkata).
I have a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science.
Languages I am good at are C, CPP and Java. Along with Bash and Python (I
am still learning).
I have 4 years of experience in coding for Android Framework, AOSP Porting,
HAL, BSP, Linux, Linux Kernel, Device Drivers and Embedded Technologies.
And Fedora being one of my favorite Open Source Platform. I wish to make
contributions in code and documentation.
I work on weekdays and could spend 10 to 15 hours per week.
*THANKS & REGARDS*
*"NOTHING IS TRUE, EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED"*
I’m Sukeerti T , from Asia/Kolkata time zone (UTC +5:30). I have completed my Engineering Graduation in Electronics and Communication.I have studied C++ and C during my academics.
Fedora seems to be a great open source platform for me to build my skills. I’m a total beginner. And I would like to help in Quality Assurance and testing. I would be really glad if you guide me through this. I can afford around 10 hours per week.
The Mindshare Committee is working on establishing a new quarterly report.
As I went to convert it into a CommBlog post, I realized that we were
only covering the teams that have reps on Mindshare. I would like to invite
the Join SIG to submit additions for the report on the corresponding ticket
. I will then add them to the CommBlog draft and get it published.
A couple notes:
- Participation is optional
- Submissions should be in bullet form, not paragraphs
- Please include any relevant links
- This report intends to cover activity during Oct-Nov-Dec of 2021
- There is a "Help Wanted" section that all teams are welcome to add to
- Please submit by end of day Sunday January 16th
If Join wants to skip this one and participate in a later report, that is
totally okay. We will work to gather additions earlier in the process next

I know when I brought this up almost exactly a year ago*, people weren't
convinced. With the recent site re-org, and planned merge of Ask Fedora, I
I'm going to try again to convince you. :)
As I look back at the traffic here from the last year, 95% of it is
introductions. I think those could certainly be in
https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/c/fun/8 instead — either as individual
posts in the #introductions tag, or added to the
Or, we could start a new one _specifically_ for Fedora Join.
There are also several "what can I do"? posts. It _might_ be useful to have
a separate tag (or even Team Workflows category) for that... but as I
understand the workflow, that's really supposed to be supported by the
Pagure ticket process.
And then there's been just a few "here's an easy thing to get involved in"
annoucement messages. Honestly, I think these mostly get drowned in the
noise of introductions. I like the idea of a "push" of these ideas to
potentially interested people, and theoretically that's where mailing lists
shine, but I think probably if people's traffic from the list is mostly
_other_ things, they're unlikely to find these.
I wonder if those announcements would be better served by a revamped
"Easyfix" process — there was some conversation about that here:
There is also the #join tag (https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/tag/join),
which I intended to be for topics like this one, about the team and process
itself. Ideally, all the formal members of the SIG (the sponsors
https://accounts.fedoraproject.org/group/fedora-join/, right?) would set
that tag as "Watching" so they get notifications.
Personally, I think this will be a lot easier for onboarding new people.
Fedora Project Leader
Hello everyone, I'm Soumya (@skeptronus, He/Him), presently living in Kolkata, India and I'm currently pursuing a Masters degree in Chemistry. Among other things I have a keen interest in programming and I'm a strong believer of the Free- and Open-Source Philosophy, and looking to serve the community.
I know Python, some C and Bash scripting and I have a moderate-level understanding of the (GNU/)Linux OS. I consider myself a novice programmer though. I'm also interested in networks, security and privacy-centric designs and tools for Open Science.
Its been over a year now since I have settled on Fedora as the distro of my choice after some heavy distro-hopping, and I'm very satisfied with the experience.
I have not actively contributed to any major FOSS projects yet (except occasionally submitting bug reports and translations) and I have a fairly limited
knowledge of the software development process. Thus I'd like to start with something simple, and I think packaging would be an easy task to learn.
Ankur Sinha has already opened a "Welcome to Fedora" ticket for me and I've gone through the links mentioned there, and I think I'm ready to start.
I'm looking forward to have an exciting learning experience with the community and I'm glad to get this opportunity to contribute to this awesome project.
Dear Fedorians, dear SIG/Join group, dear all,
after having learned from alciregi about a "bug" (via
I am able to write to you here and share my brief introduction.
Professionally, I am a social scientist; in the Fedora space, I briefly
already introduced myself at
I am interested in socio-technical complexities and environmental
issues. Skills? Well, I guess you are interested in the IT-related
skills. Mailman I can post to and administer, git I use every day for
LaTeX projects, I compile software that I need but is not yet available
on the repos. I have been reporting bugs via bugzilla for a few years.
At the moment I do not think I will be a programmer any time soon.
Culture, diversity, bias, political economy, environmental dimensions
(especially carbon) might be potentially of overlapping interest between
the Fedora world and my non-Fedora-life.
I also have interested in security and encryption topics – but, well,
again from a social science angle - for instance regarding privacy
behaviour and culture, the way people imagine security, the practical
issues in using encryption software.
Software-wise, my personal medium term objective is to learn to package

for what it stands for but haven't actually contributed before but want to
I am able to program in a few languages and also DB's etc, not sure what
part of the fedora project I could help out with? as my biggest problem is
finding a project to work on.
Are there any areas that I could assist with?

My name is Eris, from the EST (UTC -5) timezone. I was searching for the most organized Linux community, and I was very impressed by Fedora - especially by the documentation and the "What can I do for Fedora?" website. I am here to learn about the community, and to serve the community in any way possible.
My professional experience is mostly in quality assurance, software testing and test automation, but I am flexible to whatever your needs are. If I can improve the experience that the common person has with this operating system or with the project as a whole, that would be ideal. My primary goal is to advance the cause of humanity, and I see Fedora as a potential vehicle to a free and open-source world. If you feel there is a better community to accomplish this, please direct me there!
