Greetings team!

I'm a newbie here. I was present at the last IRC infra meeting and 
realised I had missed out on the introduction email, so here it is.

I work as a solaris technical support engineer and run a couple of 
ubuntu boxes at home for filesharing stuff, web development and all 
sorts of experiments.

I am experienced in troubleshooting hardware and software issues.

I've got web development experience with php/mysql/css/js/html so I 
could lend a hand also to websites issues as well, but it's not my 
priority. I would like to focus on the sysadmin side of the project.

I am not experienced in dealing with performance tuning of systems and 
applications or implementing large scale solutions and that is something 
I would like to improve on in the future. Working in such large 
environments and being able to propose/implement changes is totally new.

Also, my knowledge of Python is close to null, but I've got enough 
experience in php/java to, at least, understand what's going on.

So, to summarize, my objectives are:
- learning python
- improving knowledge of fedora/red hat
- develop, implement, maintain services and applications on a large 
scale setup
- install/setup servers

What I can offer:
- technical knowledge for services such as nfs, ssh, http...
- troubleshooting experience
- web development experience (backend and frontend)

But first things first: I need to get familiar with your environment.

I don't expect to work more than a few hours a week (5-6), and I cannot 
be present at all the meetings.

I can see that there are a few tickets that can interest me, so I'll get 
on them soon enough.

Thank you for reading, the email was probably a tad too long :)
