Introduce Yourself to the Docs Project

When a new writer/editor joins the Documentation Project, we ask that he/she introduces themselves on the Fedora Docs mailing list. To sign up for the list, visit the fedora-docs-list signup page . The primary purpose of this is to begin the process of building trust by learning about the writer/editor, and downloading their GPG key.

The below items in bold are Requested while the other items are optional but recommended.
Translators do not need to do self-introductions on the fedora-docs-list mailing list, and can instead refer to the rest of the information on the DocsProject/Translation page.

The purpose of all this is to break anonymity and foster real-world community within the project. You are under no obligation to reveal personal secrets. The objective is to establish a level of trust with yourself and the other members of the project.

A question to keep in mind is:

~+What do you want to know about people before working with and trusting them?+~

Then tell us what you would want to know about yourself.
