Activities within Fedora
I joined at the South East LinuxFest 2010 at the Friday Fedora Activity day. Right now I am focusing on wiki gardening. I am interested in working on documentation guides in need of adoption. Also, if you want an experienced sysadmin to read your guide, please let me know.
Currently I am reviewing the rpm guide and surfing the bugzilla in search of packages in need of manpages.
I did not know Fedora Women existed until I joined the list on June 20, 2010. At the very least, I have helped by increasing Fedora Women population by one.
As women, it is important to stand up, be heard, and be counted as part of the greater community.
I am Fedora
Read my blog post where I declare "I am Fedora."
What I do:
- I am not a programmer. I enjoy helping people get started with Linux wherever I can.
- My day job is "Senior Systems Engineer" at a government research facility supporting Linux-based high performance resources.
My contributions are focused on one of these efforts:
1. The Ohio LinuxFest, a community conference for all, ohiolinux.org
2. What Will We Use, a blog on resolving bug one, whatwillweuse.com
3. Western PA Linux User Group, my home LUG, wplug.org
4. Visionary behind a Linux system adoption service freelinuxbox.org
What I am using now:
I run many flavors of Linux including: Fedora 12 & 13 and Ubuntu 10.04 UNR on the desktop. On server platforms I use RHEL, CentOS, and SUSE. My home is an constant installfest.
email@example.com (personal) or firstname.lastname@example.org (Ohio LinuxFest)
Unfortunately I rarely can access the Internet during US-Eastern business hours. With that said, I have been known to appear in the following channels on freenode.net... fedora-docs, lopsa, and wplug
The Ohio LinuxFest has the #ohiolinux on the irc.oftc.net network.
