Hi all! I am new to this mailing list and would like to introduce myself. I am an
automation technician and technical institute engineer.
I have been using various Linux distros on and off since 2005 when I first got introduced
to Fedora. I've switched between Ubuntu, Debian, Mint and Fedora, but over time I have
found that Fedora is the distro that suits me best and the one I actually enjoy quite a
lot. For a few years a Macbook has been my goto-computer, but I've tried to keep up
with what's happening in the Linux world. Now I want to contribute to the Fedora
project since I've started using it on a regular basis again, simply because I think
it's a brilliant system.
In time I want to contribute in development and programming, but first I want to get to
know Fedora even better by contributing to docs and translation.
I have signed up for several of the mailing lists, including the join, docs and trans
lists. I have registered on FAS, signed CLA and uploaded the SSH key. In Zanata I am
approved for writing and I have logged in to Pagure. I have already translated some
content in Zanata to get started. I have also joined several IRC channels where my nick is
I have to admit that it has been a bit overwhelming to get an overview of all the
different sites and systems that are being used. I still struggle finding my way around,
but I'll get a hold of it soon.
I look forward to contributing and collaborating with you all. If anyone has any advice or
heads up for me it will be highly appreciated. Also, I still have no access to any FAS
groups (except Signed CLA Group and Signers of the Fedora Project Contributor Agreement),
but I've applied to the Fedora Translators Group. I would like to hear from you if
there are any other groups or forums I should join.
Again, I am looking forward to contributing and collaborating with you all, and last but
not least being part of the community.
Sincerely, Joakim Forøysund
