Are there any areas that I could assist with?
There are a number of technical areas in the community---primarily
packaging (software dev) and community infrastructure related. The
packaging bits are all related to the set of packages in Fedora:
- creating and maintaining them
- reviewing them
- testing them
- release validation and other QA activities
I think testing updates is perhaps the simplest and most general---just
test the packages you use and provide feedback:
If there are specific packages you use and are interested in helping
maintain, you can do that too.
The infrastructure bits revolve around all the tools we use to do all
our work. Lots of development and sys admin work here:
Have we opened a "Welcome to Fedora" ticket for you yet? The links
provided there try to give you an overview of the community so that'll
be where I'd recommend starting with.
