Firstly, we have some materials on the wiki (1) to help you get started.
Come hang out in #fedora-qa on Freenode.  We don't bite, but adamw
may fire you from time to time!

Probably the best way you can help out is grab the latest test image and
help with testing that.

RE the Raspberry Pi, alas, Fedroa does not support it; for one it's ARMv6
and is an old architecture, and the kernel to run it is not fully open source.

Welcome to the club!
