Help wanted for Fedora Docs
by Padmaja Bhol
Hello, I'm Padmaja Bhol, an Outreachy'22 summer applicant. I was looking forward to contributing to the fedora-docs team. I'm currently on a Fedora Linux system, and I have opened a beginner-friendly pull request for the fedora server. You can have a look here: https://pagure.io/fedora-server/pull-request/81
I went through the HackMD document, which thoroughly described the outreachy proposal put forward by the docs team, and I wanted some insight into what they are expecting on the docs main page. I believe it's essential for me to understand the standard layout before I put forward a proposal. I'm not familiar with a mailing list, so is there a way I can contact the mentors- Ben Cotton and Vipul Siddarth, about the same? Thanks.

Introduction/Getting in contact with leadership
by Sung Jun Noh
My name is Sung Jun and I'm a student and a hobbyist programmer. I've been
using Linux on and off for about 6 years now, starting with Ubuntu
derivatives on my poor old Pavilion laptop. I've also been programming,
mainly with Java and Python, for around the same time.
I'm unfortunately not planning to directly contribute to the Fedora
project. However, I would like to potentially explore the Fedora project as
for my coursework, which requires me to do primary market research from an
organization. I wasn't sure what was the best channel for such inquiries,
but I figured fedora-join could be appropriate.
I'd like to get in touch and arrange interviews with the Fedora leadership
(Fedora council, engineering committee, and/or mindshare committee), as
well as surveys amongst willing contributors at large as part of coursework
requirements. The coursework is to be completed by next fall - so they are
at liberty to select a time as they see fit, while being mindful of their
other obligations. However, I'd like to get something arranged by April
4th, when the research proposal is due. So, please help me get in contact
with the right people.
Thank you for helping me out.

I'm a senior computer science student currently wrapping up my last
semester. I've speicalized in cybersecurity in my coursework, but at
the cost of not doing as much programming as I'd really like in order
to stay sharp. I've been using Fedora on my laptop for most of the
semester after looking for a Linux distro that fell in line with what I
want, and I fell in love with using it. I'm looking to contribute to
the project really in whatever way I can. This will be my first time
contributing to an open source project (or really anything that isn't
for school), so I'm at a loss as to where I should start.

I've been a Linux user since about 2000 when a friend installed
Mandrake for me and I've at least dual-booted ever since. I became a
consistent Fedora user starting around version 4 when it was still
called Fedora Core. I'm excited by the idea of finally giving back. At
work I do mostly sysadmin and devops work, but I get a lot of enjoyment
out of coding too.
I'm still getting around to reading all the documentation on
contributing, but if anyone has advice about maintaining packages or
other backend work that keeps the quality of the distribution high, I
am all ears.

Where is help needed?
by Sergei Ivanoff
Hello, I'm looking to get into contributing to the Fedora project since I am using it as my main OS.
I have experience doing all sorts of things with software, such as development, testing, package
maintenance, release coordination, configuration management, cloud, and infrastructure automation.
Where is the most help needed right now?
