Every week mattdm publishes his series "5 Things In Fedora This Week."
It is a *really* awesome regular feature on Fedora Magazine, and a great
way to get out the big news of the week to the community at large. This
list is *artisinally* crafted by the FPL himself (I know because I've been
watching him diligently do it each week since I got here.)
This is one of those parts of Fedora that falls *squarely* into our "Things
CommOps Helps With" bucket.
*Mission*: Add "5tftw" to the Commops Wiki page toolbox section, and point
to Fedora Magazine as a link. In the description, indicate that if folks
want to contribute, there are only 2 requirements: The "Thing" needs at
least ONE link, and can have a maximum of 5 sentences of descriptive text.
To contribute send your "Thing" to the CommOps mailing list, and in the
subject line 5tftw and the Date of the Friday of the week you want to
publish your "thing" on. (e.g. 5tftw 10/30/15)
Good Luck CommOps!
Here are a few suggestions for NLP-related tasks :
1. Analyse Fedora IRC Channel conversations to find expertise of
i.e. Contributors hang out in different IRC channels and have different
domains of expertise (sometimes channel-specific or not). Analyse IRC
conversations to find out areas of expertise of contributor. Could be
helpful in finding the "right person" for the task/mentoring/problem
solving.(especially for newcomers/ tasks outside a specific team)
2. Sentiment Analysis to find which application needs most help/development
, what are users mostly contributing on , which tasks are relatively
tougher and need senior contributors to work on them.
These are just some rough ideas which I think would be helpful. Please add
more to the list or tell me your inputs/suggestions on these .
Hello, I'm Jona, a new Fedora Ambassador in Albania. I have finished my
studies in Business Informatics at the University of Tirana and I'm a
hackivist at Open Labs. I'm
passionate about philosophy of Open Source, i believe in
transparency and cooperation, open and free Internet. Lately i have been
working on promoting FLOSS in Albania and I'm very passionate about
programming, i already know HTML, JS and a bit of Python
I'd love to be part of Community Operations Project. Looking forward to
contributing to CommOps on wiki related tasks
My name is Silva Arapi, I come from Albania. I am part of Open Labs
Hackerspace <http://openlabs.cc/>, a community who promotes Free Libre Open
Source Software in Albania. It's been almost a month now, since I got
involved in the group who promotes and contributes in the Fedora Project.
It has been an amazing month, with many events that we have organized and I
have learned way much more about fedora, and feel more confident about the
contribution that I can give for the Fedora Project.
I would like to apply for the Outreachy Program and be part of Community
Operations project. More specifically I would like to work with web testing
and bug reporting or content development. I know HTML5, CSS3, JQuery and
be waiting for more information on how should I proceed to get involved to
I'm forwarding this to the CommOps mailing list, where I know there are
some new contributors looking for wiki tasks :)
AFAIK, you can just log-in with your FAS account and edit the wiki, unless
this page is restricted to be editable by only certain accounts (in which
case, it may not help to post this to the CommOps list, but it is a
learning experience for everyone eitherway.)
Thanks for your report and contributions :)

I have a keen interest in English and am part of the Literary society of my
college and also in the Lean In chapter of my college.
I would really like to contribute towards your project Fedora commOps in
the Outreachy 2016 program.
I have prior knowledge of Python, Ruby,C, HTML and CSS.
How can I be of any help? I find the project very intriguing and would do
my best to contribute towards it.

New contributors are encouraged to hang out in IRC where we coordinate
activity and hold meetings about various parts of Fedora.
Some good channels to join on Freenode for onboarding generally include:
For writing and documentation, you should also join:
Tonight at 5pm ET there will be an editorial meeting for Fedora Magazine,
which I know is always looking for authors and contributing writers. For
details on that meeting and any others, you can check our various team
calendars on Fedocal: http://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar
If you have questions, my nick is decause (though I'm travelling today and
may not be able to respond immediately.)
