At the first of every month(or so), I am going to be sending out an email
like this one. I would like feedback on how things are going for you.
I'd like to ask for everyone to send me a quick reply with the following
data or anything related you can think of that might help us make the
apprentice program more useful.
0. Whats your fedora account system login?
1. Have you logged in and used your fi-apprentice membership to look
machines/setup in the last month? Do you plan to?
I've tested access to bastion, however with work constraints (and the freezes)
I haven't had a proper look around.
2. Has it helped you decide any area you wish to focus on or
No, not yet - haven't had a proper look, so it hasn't really helped :)
3. Have you looked at or been able to work on any of the
I have looked at these, though I haven't been able to work on any.
4. Do you still wish to be a member of the group? If not (for
reason) could you provide any hints to help others down the road?
I would like to be a member of the group, however between time constraints,
the low number of 'easyfix' tickets, and my general lack of familiarity with
how everything is set up, I may have to sit back and lurk for a while longer
5. Is there any help or communication or ideas you have that would
do any of the above?
There's nothing specific that I could add, however I would like to offer my +1
to Miroslav Suchy's suggestion of a workshop or similar activity to facilitate
induction of apprentices. The current material describing the Infrastructure
environment is good, but I found that it didn't really leave a 'START HERE
kind of opening - kind of like saying to an apprentice mechanic: "Here's a
car, here's a list of problems, let me know when you're done".
6. What do you find to be the hardest part of getting involved?
things to work on? Getting attention from others to help you? Finding
tickets in your interest area?
As above, primarily time constraints and lack of direction/starting point (as
well as the few number of easyfix tickets).
7. Have you been able to make any weekly irc meetings? Do you find
helpful or interesting?
Unfortunately, the IRC meetings are painfully early for me - I'm currently at
UTC+1100 (AEDT, reverts back to UTC+1000 early next year).
8. What was the very first computer you ever used?
HP Pavilion PC Model 4450
This amused me, not only because of the specifications, but because it took so
long for me to remember and find any information on it! I've used older, but
this was the first.
Any other general feedback is also quite welcome, including
this email, the wiki page, etc.
Any folks I do not hear from in the next week will be removed from the
group. (Note that it's easy to be readded when you have time or whatever
and it's nothing at all personal, we just want to keep the group up to date
with active folks).
Thanks, and looking forward to your feedback!
