Introducing myself
 
Hi folks

I've just joined this list although I'm not a high powered programmer so
I think at first my skills can probably be best used in one of the other
teams. I'm open to suggestions on that score.

I've been a Web site administrator at Dundee University in Scotland, an
IT tutor in Community Education, a teacher of English as a Foreign
Language in London, from August 2003 to September 2007 I was living in a
Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the Scottish Borders where I was Webmaster
and Web designer for two sites, and I'm currently studying for an MA in
Writing for Children at Winchester University in England.

I'm also a writer, storyteller and performance poet for children and
families. But be warned, The Smelly Wellie Tele Show is nowhere near as
exciting as it sounds; it's just me I'm afraid and it isn't on the telly.

Oh, and I sing a bit but I'm really rubbish at tap dancing :-[

Looking through the Edubuntu lists, my skills don't fit Development,
Artwork or Bugsquad. So that leaves:
Website
Handbook
Documentation
Advocacy
Study Content

I'd be happy to start off helping with any of these.

One proviso: I've installed and used 3 or 4 different distros in the
past but I'm nowhere near an expert, so being assigned a mentor would
probably be very useful.

And one last point for now. I've just bought a new laptop - an Acer
Aspire 7720G Intel Dual Core processor - and I've installed Ubuntu 7.10
to dual boot with Vista. Needless to say it's not plain sailing and
there are no guides in English for the 7720G so writing a report on my
experiences might be a good place to start.

However, like I said I'm open to suggestions regarding which team I
might join so, over to you folks.

All the best,

Chik

Hi to all,

I'm writing this because of a mail discussion in the
ubuntu-devel-discuss@lists.ubuntu.com mailinglist. I have quoted the
corresponding mail below :-).

I am a SysAdmin in Berlin Germany, worked on different Unix/Linux (Mac
OS X and Windows also) networks and like to join the Ubuntu Server
team. Also I'm involved in the ubutu-berlin open user group, who tries
to get Ubuntu to the masses in Berlin ;-). For now I'm self employed
and work for a few small companies. Most of my customers have Ubuntu
servers installed by me in there networks. Some of them also use
Ubuntu Desktop Systems installed by me. Most common software I use are
bind, apache, postfix, dovecot, eGroupWare, OpenLDAP, sendmail, Drupal
and a lot more.

I'm good at setting up various open source software and at testing. If
you need someone for testing, I might help.

I already applied for the Ubuntu-Server team in launchpad. If there is
something more to do from me, please let me know.

Kind regards,

Michael

I'd suggest you go through the GettingInvolved [1] page on the ServerTeam
pages. There is also the Roadmap page [2] where you can have an overview
on what the Ubuntu Server Team is working on now.

[1]: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/GettingInvolved
[2]: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/Roadmap

As for testing, I've recently uploaded an openldap package to my PPA [3]
that enables the cn=config backend. Upgrade testing is welcome to check
if the migration from a slapd.conf to the cn=config backend is working
correctly.

OK you got me work for the weekend ;-). First I have to setup some
OpenLDAP test servers, because I can not use any production LDAP
servers for this. Luckily I have some slapd.conf files that wants to
get converted.

"Simon Birtwistle" 01-29-2009 02:52 PM

Introducing Myself
 
All,


*


Having just requested access to the sysadmin and
sysadmin-test groups on FAS and on the advice of David Nalley I thought I
should introduce myself.* I have been working with the docs team over the last
week on the possibility of running the Zikula Application Framework as the CMS
behind docs.fedoraproject.org.* I am a member of the board of the Zikula
Software Foundation and the Zikula Steering Committee, and I have been acting
as the lead in discussions about how to best address the needs of the docs
project on their website, and the needs of the Fedora project at large.


*


My name is Simon Birtwistle, and I’m currently located
in Cambridge in the UK.* I am in the final year of studying for a degree in
Computer Science at Cambridge University, and providing all goes well
I’ll be graduating in June.* I’ve used Fedora on and off for
years and years, though despite thinking about it I never got around to
contributing.* Most of my time is taken up with the Zikula project, where
my work with the Steering Committee involves project management and day to day
organisation, but I’m hoping that I can combine my work there with useful
work on the Fedora websites where it’s helpful.


*


Skills wise, I am mainly a web developer, as you’d
expect, with a good knowledge of PHP and MySQL.* I also have experience
with Java as well as C# .NET and some other less well known languages from my
degree course.* I have also used Docbook in the past for Zikula project
documentation, so I at least have a vague idea where the docs project are
coming from.


*


I’m hoping that I, and Zikula as a project, will be
able to provide a big boost to the docs project’s publishing workflow.


*


*


*


Simon

Welcome Simon!

Since I've been working with docs as part of my Packaging Committee
duties, I'll sponsor you for infrastructure work. I'm abadger1999 on
irc.freenode.net if you need any help.

As a team, we tend to talk a lot in #fedora-admin, keeping each other up
to date on happenings, socialising, etc. We also have weekly meetings
in #fedora-meeting on Thursday at 20:00 UTC where we summarise the weeks
goings on and identify things we need to work on more.

It sounds like docs is ready to get a test instance up and running. If
you can make the meeting today to give us an update (near the end we
have an open discussion session) that would be great. If not, catch us
in #fedora-admin and we'll make sure you have what you need to get setup.

-Toshio

Tareq Al Jurf 11-25-2009 07:23 PM

Introducing myself
 
HiI'm Tareq Al Jurf. I'm from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I'm a last year high school student. My goal is to spread Fedora in Riyadh or any other place in Saudi Arabia or any Arab country. I'd like people to use, know about and join the Fedora Project. I've already started convincing students in my school and online to migrate to Fedora. Although i don't have any marketing certification, I think that i gained experience in marketing Fedora. I'll try hard because in Saudi Arabia less than 5% know anything about linux.

I wish that you accept me at the team :)
Thanks in Advance--
