I am a member of the [[Ambassadors]] group. When I looked at the list of Ambassadors way back when, I was surprised at how few were from North Carolina. I also found that I could answer yes to all three of the questions raised that were then on the [[Ambassadors/Join | join]] page (the processes have changed with time and growth). As an Linux instructor in my $dayjob I already did (and still do) many of the other tasks listed under how to be an active ambassador.

Even though I had been working with open source for many years, my first contribution to any community project was as general contributor to the [[DocsProject | Docs Project]]. This includes wiki gardening and assisting with the various guides such as the Users Guide and the Installation Guide which are updated each release. I learned about Docbook and Publican through this project and still use those skills in my $dayjob today. I would like to do more with the project in general and have a particular interest in assisting with the security related guides.

I am still interested in assisting the [[Infrastructure]] team and am on several of the mailing lists from when I joined several years ago. It is an excellent way to watch a large project make use of cutting edge technology and if I could just dedicate some more time to it, I could learn so much about products I am aware of, interested in, but have not had a chance to really implement. Just lurking on the mailing list prepared me for $dayjob adventures with Puppet and Ansible.

I have "herded cats" for updates to the User Guide and was the lead for that document for a couple of releases.
*page can only be in one namespace but can have multi categories.
 
*level1 headers are deprecated and bad bad bad - (page name can have spaces so name your page the level1 headers)
 
*first thing should not be section header so you get an intro para THEN the table of contents in intro mention that title (in bold). From mediawiki style guide.
 
*put category at the bottom of page
 
*can we find pages with a l1 header - and rename page using l1 header and remove l1 header
 
*look at [[https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:Fonts fonts]] as how category page can have it's own content. uses templates to then list all pages within that category.

When I had more time to dedicate to the wiki each week, I was the Docs Project contact person for the Packaging Guide and related documentation.  Tasks were listed in [[Docs_tasks_for_Packaging_Guide_and_related_materials]].  The first step was wiki cleanup.  Then looking into using the CMS for better workflow and access control with the actual Packaging Guide documentation. As the testing of the CMS started, I also applied to the [[Infrastructure]] team.  Toshio was nice enough to ask and to sponsor me so that I can at least be involved in the testing of the CMS.  I am interested in being on the team but concerned that I do not have the time to contribute as much as is necessary.  Time will tell (pun intended).

Greetings,
 
Greetings,
  
I have been meaning to get more involved with fedoraproject for a while and I have been lurking here on the docs list for a few weeks now. I was struggling a little to figure out how this project worked but then I rescued about 50 messages from my spam folder and it is now starting to make more sense :)
+
I had been meaning to get more involved with fedoraproject for a while before I finally made the commitment. For all that I use and recommend opensource, this is the first project I actually joined (better late then never I guess).  
 
 
I have been a contract instructor for Red Hat since 2000 and involved in network operating system support and training since 1992 (and *nix user even longer). I have contributed to Red Hat course materials including general bug reports, testing updated labs, helping to update the online training from RHEL3 to RHEL4, and providing content for the first release of Red Hat Academy materials.  
 
  
The Red Hat Academy project involved working with DocBook.
+
I am interested in all things related to learning and teaching - documentation, planning, consulting, corporate training, university settings, and youngsters too.
I have taught and used cvs, seen subversion, and am sure I can figure out git relatively quickly.
 
I am not as versed in wiki and irc etiquette and usage but I have been poking around and reading some of the intro and FAQ docs and of course I have had plenty of experience with mailing lists and AIM.

I have been a contract instructor for Red Hat since 2000 and involved in network operating system support and training since 1992 (and *nix user even longer). I have contributed to Red Hat course materials including general bug reports, testing updated labs, contributing to online course content and videos, updating existing courses, and providing content for the first release and later updates of Red Hat Academy materials (with docbook). I also teach courses related to other Linux distributions and general computing security topics.  In addition to teaching formal classes, I also do some consulting and really enjoy the short assignments that are often mostly an informal skill transfer.
  
I am interested in all things related to learning and teaching - documentation, corporate training, university settings, and youngsters too.
+
I started with the docs project because it seemed that I had most of the skills needed, felt confident that I could quickly pick up the remaining skills, and it seemed to be the most flexible on time commitments.  I had taught and used cvs and seen subversion so I quickly figuring out the basics of using git. I was new to wiki syntax and irc etiquette but I after poking around and reading some of the intro and FAQ docs I quickly felt comfortable with those tools as well.  
  
I am also lurking on the OLPC list and as a longer term goal, I would like to learn more about packaging.
+
I am interested in learning new software through the infrastructure team and expanding my rpm packaging skills.
