My name is Simon Roberts, Im looking to get involved with helping out
the fedora project.
I'm currently studying Forensic Computing at university, and have a keen
interest in system security.
I think that helping write documentation about software applications
will be very benificial for my own understanding, and also a good way to
learn technical writing skills.
I am looking to go into penetration testing eventually when I leave
Projects that I am looking for would be Network, Utility based programs,
or file system level pograms (gedit for example).
I can contribute anywhere between 2 -5 hours minimum, and more can be
I look farward to hearing from you all soon.

Right of course :)
Yes that is 2 - 5 hours a week that I can contribute :)
Sorry all, for the confusion.
Several teams of L10N are experiencing Tx problem, preventing them to
submit translated files. Pior are helping them to commit directly to
git. The bug has also been created to accept the translated files.
Please refer to the thread for detail ..
It would be much appreciated if you could have closer look and pick up
all files to be committed or attached to the bug.
Fedora Release Notes for Fedora 14 are available on Bodhi and need
karma. Please install fedora-release-notes-14.0.0-1.noarch.fc14.rpm,
preferably on a test system or stick, try them out, and give them karma.
If you are unsure about Bodhi, instructions are at
The Meego spin isn't going to be ready by release and so will not be a
downloaded ISO for the F14 release. (The owner hopes to publish a remix
somewhat after the F14 release and have it back for F15.)
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/14/Spins has been updated to reflect
The release notes version numbering is described in
Basically, the RPM is numbered x.y.z-a where:
- x is the Fedora release the document describes
- y is the revision ordinal of the XML. This implies that revision
numbers in Revision_History.xml will have numbers of the form x.y
- z is the revision ordinal of the tar file. Typically this will change
due to changes in translations, gets reset when y changes.
- a is the build ordinal, updated for rebuilds from the same tar
