Unfortunately, my new job requires a lot of hours and I don't
have the option of working on Fedora project work at my job. I'd
really like to keep learning as best I can and contributing so I
don't want to just leave and give up on volunteering. At the same
time I need more direction, but I can't make the Thursday meetings.
No problem, we know how it goes... ;)
Can anyone suggest from experience how I might stay involved
given my circumstances? I've been working on a ticket but my lack of
Python experience means I could use some help closing that ticket. I
ask because people seem to work/discuss the projects on the irc
channel various times of the day and I'd really like to keep learning
and put to use what I know already in terms of sys admin.
You could try adding questions in the ticket you are looking at, or try
and see who submitted the ticket and see if you can catch them on irc
and ask them more questions.
IRC is great for random questions about something, just chime right in.
Please get back with me, if anyone is so inclined, to help me find an
approach to be more productive and stay involved. This is important
to me and if I can make it work, I'd really like to do so. Guidance
is much appreciated.
Idling in IRC is also sometimes good as you can see a conversation that
might be related to something you are doing, even if you were not there
at the time...
