Subject: Request for mentor
To: wiki <wiki(a)lists.fedoraproject.org>
I've already contributed a bit, but as I was reading Mike McGrath's
"How to be a successful contributor" Wiki article, I realized that
I hadn't really introduced myself. I also realized that I'd like a
sponsor/mentor. This is my attempt to remedy both of those. ;)
First of all, some quick facts: My name is Aaron Faanes. My FAS
account and IRC nick is dafrito. I live in the central timezone.
I've been using *nix in some form for the past few years. I ran
FreeBSD a few years ago, then Ubuntu for about a year. I saw a talk by
Greg Kroah-Hartman that praised Fedora and Red Hat for their
commitment to upstream, so I switched and have been using it almost
exclusively ever since.
I'm a jack-of-all-trades sort of person. I've got a few years of
tooling/docs/support side of things. Consequently, I feel like I could
have posted this sponsor request to the test, docs, and websites
mailing lists all with similar levels of enthusiasm.
However, I decided to request a wiki mentor since the wiki seems to be
where I've found my groove. I've done some writing, some template
work, and I'd be interested to continue that work. I've also made
some suggestions (some good, some not-so-good ;) ), and I'd like to
work with a sponsor to guide me towards the ideas that have consensus
and interest. I've also had an interest in being an admin for the
Wiki, so a sponsor could help see if I'm up for that task as well.
I'd like to start small. I feel like there's a tendency, at least for
myself, to dive into too much and get overwhelmed, so I feel like a
sponsor would help ensure that things don't get too crazy. As far as
timing is concerned, I can commit two to three afternoons (10-15
hours) a week.
Thank you for your consideration,
