Hello Docs team,I've been a Linux user since 2004 but had a 6-7 year gap before
picking up Linux again 2 years ago. To assist my son who was running a 1st generation
RaspberryPI B with Raspbian, I resharpened my Linux skills by installing mostly Ubuntu
based distros on old hardware. Before my hiatus away from Linux, Fedora was my daily
driver, and a few weeks ago I came back to Fedora installing it on my latest "new to
me" Dell Optiplex 390. Currently, I'm having fun running Fedora 30 Server with
Fluxbox on top for my Window Manager / Desktop of choice. I enjoy the CLI and learning new
commands to manage my Linux boxes from the CLI.
What I love about Linux more than anything is the community. I don't have a lot of
money, hence the reason why I'm running Linux on 7-10 year old computers with 4gb of
RAM and running lightweight Window Mangers like Fluxbox, but I would like to give back to
the Linux community that has given so much to me. I've been involved in providing help
to users in the Bodhi Linux forum and Discord, and I participate in the Virtual LUG
community known as "Big Daddy Linux" on Youtube and their Discourse forum.
I believe that my profession as a pastor who takes challenging ideas and presents those
ideas through writing, preaching, and teaching has provided me with a background that I
hope will be helpful in creating technical documentation for Fedora users. I love breaking
down complex ideas and presenting them in different ways for the benefit of others. I also
enjoy hearing feedback, and using it to adjust my presentation of information for their
Although I have only recently come back to Fedora, I decided to join the docs team for the
following reasons. I remember the Fedora community as being welcoming and willing to help
new users. I noticed that Fedora Docs is using ASCIIDOC which is a technology I have used
in the past and enjoyed. Fedora Docs had a process to bring new contributors into the
project. Although I have wanted to participate in documentation efforts in other Linux
Communities, I did not find a series to steps to follow to get involved. Fedora offered
those steps so here I am with my "Self-Introduction" email.
I live in the US Eastern Time Zone. I would enjoy helping out with tutorials and
documentation that helps the new Fedora user grow from a beginner to an advanced user.
Hopefully, you can find a place for me to help out.
Below is my gpg public key, this was the most complicated part of joining the Fedora
community but I think I did it right.
