No, but I'm *very* new to fi-apprentice. I do plan to, to help wrangle fedora-hubs prototype code, and perhaps experiement some one-off webapps.

I haven't logged in yet, so N/A.

I have, and I'm *quite* interested in helping with #3617 :)

YES! :)

I'd be interested in helping to populate the Fedora-Infra Hubs page, so that we can pose these questions (and answers) to potential new contributors :)

Easy-fix tickets I spose. The queue is definitely pretty dated...

Historically, I have had conflicting meetings as a professor teaching courses, but those are done now as of 1 week ago :)

I was able to make the last meeting, and I did connect to Gobby.

Somewhere with lots of snow, and lots of bandwidth :)

Moving forward with Hubs, there is an opportunity to corral all the things, and I want to help make that happen. I am *horribly* biased, but I think there is much potential for things like fedmsg and fedora badges. I will continue getting more involved and learning as much as I can.
