The first thing you can do is to give Mashuq a brief outline of what
projects Fedora offers (Fedora Core, Fedora Extras, Fedora
Documentation, Fedora Ambassadors, Fedora Marketing, Fedora Bug
Triaging, Fedora Legacy, Fedora Directory Server, Fedora
Infrastructure, Fedora Websites, Fedora Artwork, Fedora
Translation--they are all linked from )
and explain in a sentence or two what each of these projects does.

If he has a desire to join one of these groups, your next step would
be to help him get in touch with the project leadership and leave him
in their capable hands after you have made sure they are taking care
of him.

Hi folks,

I received this message yesterday or so.  I have not yet responded.  Am
not sure how to respond to this query.  Normally I respond to queries with
a plug for the project I work with and specifically mentor for (Fedora
Legacy) but somehow I don't think that appropriate for this particular
person.  Sounds like this fellow wants to help *develop* software, not
maintain existing software for security vulnerabilities.

Do any of you have suggestions, or would any of you like to respond to
this fellow?  I'd appreciate hearing from you either way.  Thank you.

        Warm regards,
        David Eisenstein

Subject: I would like to join the Fedora Project


A bit abt me - I am a 3rd year comp scie student and would like to

I personally use fedora core 5 on my laptop. I have good knowledge of Java
and working knowledge on C. I dont have any previous experience of working
on a large software development project consisting many people. I hope u
can help and guide me to join the Fedora community and contribute.
