Haven't heard anything on the below: should I shelve it and move onto an open ticket?* Máirín I'd be interested in discussing anything UI related :-)

Thanks for the warm welcome.
The sticky-notes piece sounds like a good place to start - hook me up and I will see how it goes!

Very impressive portfolio! Fantastic visual design on all of these.

Awesome! I'm so glad to see you have so much open source tool
Our normal process for joining the team is that we ask new recruits to
take on a minor ticket in our tracking system as sort of
practical/applied introduction to how the Fedora community works. You
end up making connections and learning the Fedora infrastructure through
that which powers you to taking on bigger projects.
I don't know if the design ticket has been filed yet, but the Fedora
infrastructure team (#fedora-admin on irc.freenode.net) yesterday was
talking about needing a Fedora skin for a stickynotes web app they're
looking to deploy. A test instance of it is available at:
We'd want, at a minimum, for the design/template to match our newer
Fedora infrastructure templates such as for Fedora packages (I did the
skin for this one):
Or Koji, our build system (Ryan Lerch, who is also based in Australia at
the moment, did the skin for this):
Let me know if this seems like an intro project you'd like to take on.
Alternatively we could find something more UX-centric for you to take on
since you have strong interest and ability in UX stuff. We do have a few
pending usability assessments and mockup requests in the ticket system.
Our list of open tickets is here:
Anyway, I don't want to overload you with information; if the
sticky-notes project looks interesting let me know and I can get a
ticket for it assigned to you, otherwise let's chat more about potential
