Welcome!

If you have not already, please do take a look at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/GettingStarted
It has some good pointers for getting started.

See me on irc (nick: nirik) about getting added into the apprentice
group, then you can look around at our setup and see if any tickets or
issues sound interesting to work on.

Willington Vega
 
Default Self Introduction

Hello, I'm Willington Vega, a systems and informatics engineer from
Colombia currently studying for masters degree in systems engineering
at Universidad Nacional. I'm a fedora user since Fedora Core 6 and now
I'm trying to get more involved.

I started with a small package earlier this year, but at that time I
couldn't continue with the review process.

The package was for textext[1][2], an extension for Inkscape that
allows one to add LaTeX text objects to the drawings and edit them
later if necessary. For me this is a necessary feature and it would be
good if others are able to use it without having to do a manual
installation, which is easy, but not as easy as 'yum install
inkscape-textext'.

I created a review request [3] and I'm still looking for a sponsor,
but I know I'll have to work harder this time .

Last weekend I took the SRPM for Hotot 0.9.6 and made changes to
package version 0.9.7. I sent the spec file to the package maintainer
(Rahul Sundaram), he made additional modifications and pushed an
update. He also asked me if I wanted to be a co-maintainer for the
package and I'm preparing to accept that offer.

Introducing myself to the list is the first step of my training. Now
I'll start looking for some packages that I can review and help me
improve my packaging skills.

My main interest right now is to learn more about being a package
maintainer or co-maintainer, become familiar with the packaging
guidelines and practice with small packages like the one I submitted
or Hotot. Then I can start packaging other interesting packages or
help to maintain existing ones.

Thanks to all.

Giovanni Campagna
 
Default Self introduction

Hello Fedora developers,

I'm Giovanni Campagna and I'm a first year student of informatics
engineering at Politecnico di Milano.
Some of you may already know me because I'm also an upstream contributor
and part-time developer for GNOME (in particular in the Shell area), but
this time I decided to dive deep in the land of distributions.

I've been a Fedora user since Fedora 11, coming from a Kubuntu (and of
course Windows) background. I liked it from the very beginning, as it
seemed a very professional and solid system.
From that, I've seen it grow and change, adding and improving on the
best technology available every 6 months, and so far I'm very happy with
the results.
This is to say, great job everyone!

As for me coming here, it's because I want to improve it even more,
finding where it lacks compared to the competition and fixing it. I
believe that the ultimate goal of Fedora, and free software in general,
is market domination, so we want to provide the best product ever.
(The rest is just business, which is easy, right? [cit.])
In any case, I don't want to pollute this introductory mail with
technical details, so I'll illustrate the area I'd like to work on in
the next mail.

See you soon,

Giovanni

Default Self Introduction

Hello,
I've been creating rpm packages for Fermi Linux for over 10 years, and
Scientific Linux 8 years, but I never had time to do anything for Fedora
and EPEL. Now that I'm not with Scientific Linux, I've got the time.
I'd like to help with the OpenShift client packages for Fedora and EPEL.
So I'm going to sign up to be a co-maintainer for rubygem-rhc, and
rubygem-json-pure (a new dependancy for rhc).

I dunno. He's shifty.(<zing>) He hangs out with known unseemly
people (mmcgrath) and has been known to hang out with even more
unseemly people (physicists!!).

Schwickerath Ulrich
 
Default Self Introduction

Hello,

My name is Ulrich Schwickerath, I'm working at CERN for the IT division, where I've done some rpm packaging of internally used software for
many years. I got involved in virtualization and cloud computing activities, and have been working with OpenNebula. Recently, we upgraded
our OpenNebula server to SL6 and OpenNebula 3.0, for which I had to do some packaging of ruby gems which I believe are useful for the
community as well. I started in August with one request [1] which I would like to complete, to start with.

Thanks to all,
Ulrich

Can I please roll out a giant blue carpet to welcome you?

You should consider also joining the Cloud SIG mailing list - we'd love
to hear about your progress in openshift-land, and help out where we
can. (We also have IRC meetings on Fridays, and you're of course welcome
to join, and we hang out in #fedora-cloud.)

Hi Ulrich,

A big cloudy welcome to you as well (gee, look at all the cloudy
introductions today!)

As I said to Troy - you're welcome to also join the Cloud SIG mailing
list - we have a number of people interested in swapping cloudy package
reviews, discussing things, etc.

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/cloud

I see in your bz that IRC access is not an option right now, which is a
bummer, but we are always happy to converse on list.

Cheers,

-Robyn

Default Self Introduction

Hello Ulrich,

I'm an upstream OpenNebula developer, and it's nice to hear that
you've been packaging Ruby gems required by the OpenNebula package.
Currently I've been working with Shawn Starr (CC) on the OpenNebula
package, and for the moment the issue has been mostly with Ruby gems
dependencies, so they're sure to come in handy.

This is the feature page in Fedoraproject.org's site:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/OpenNebula

We will update it this weekend as we will have an open packaging
meeting at #opennebula in Freenode (which of course you're more than
welcome to join if you please) to reflect the status of all the Ruby
gems dependencies.

It would be great if you could complete the wiki page with any
information you consider relevant.

Regards,
Jaime

PS: We haven't yet specified a time and date for the meeting, but I'll
send another email once we do in case you'd like to join us.
