Glad to hear your contributions to the wiki worked out :)
Email is a great way to sync up with folks like me eventually, but IRC is
the place to get immediate answers to your questions if you are blocking or
need more information.
If you haven't already, take a look at the application process on
, and start drafting a plan of work. We recommend
using a collaborative text editing tool like Etherpad (
) so that mentors can easily provide input.
As always, if you have any questions, just come find us in IRC in
#fedora-commops and/or #fedora-outreachy :)

Hello Justin, thank you for your support :)
Yes Remy and I had a conversation regarding my interest in working with
the web and he suggested me to contribute to the new blog started for all
things community related: http://communityblog.fedoraproject.org
would be happy to! He also asked me to give a first contribution and add a
few things at the commops wiki, which I did but haven't been able to
communicate with Remy yet.
I would like to know how should i proceed, if you can help me :)
