My name is Murray McAllister, I've just moved to Brisbane (Australia) to
start my new job with Red Hat Asia Pacific as a content author.
I'm really keen to contribute into open source but finding it a bit hard
since I'm not a developer. I was then blessed with this job and thought
it would be a great opportunity to be able to give something back to
Congratulations on your new job.
My goals in the Fedora Project:
- contribute as much as I can. I think some small tutorials (perhaps
network configuration, user management (system-config-users/useradd,
groupadd etc), permissions would be a good start/practice.
I am currently writing errata for RHEL 5, perhaps I could use what I
have learned there to help in areas of the Fedora Project (release notes
perhaps?). I have done a lot of work with BIND so maybe once I settle
in I could start contributing more in that area (perhaps larger tutorials).
Welcome, there is always room for another committed writer.
Release notes are a very high priority, as are other documents such as
Installation Guide and Desktop User Guide.
for a list of
tasks we have set for ourselves.
- one of my 'goals' within Red Hat is to document 3 open
tools. Perhaps I could somehow combine that with a project for Fedora.
You should check out a guide I've authored on the wiki:
This document covers quite a few FOSS tools for linux for authoring
docs in Docbook XML format.
Once again, welcome aboard!
