I would love to work on the virtualization guides. It is one of my
strong points and it holds a high interest for me as I use it every day.
I am especially interested in automating the use of VMs using virsh (or
a libvirt library for Python, etc). I have such a system running now and
I use it to perform software and docs builds on a nightly basis by
running each VM using an on-demand system. I think it might be something
useful that could be added to the guides.
My Git experience is also weak (I have only used CVS and Subversion and
my CVS experience is years old). But I would only need a reason to get
up to speed on Git as it looks really interesting.
So just point me in the right direction to get me started.

I've only been around a few months myself, but reading your
background, what popped into my head is maybe you can help revive some
of the virtualization guides.
We brought back the virtualization getting started guide for F22, but
there are two others, the virtualization deployment guide and
virtualization security guide.
I've been thinking of trying to dig into the deployment guide next,
but there's plenty of room for more than one person poking away at it!
Do you have any git experience? For me, that is/was/still is my
stumbling block, but with help from folks here, I managed to not break
anything (yet :-)
And if you haven't found this page yet - it has some handy pointers:

Hello everyone -
My name is David Ashley and I want to contribute to the Fedora
I have been creating and maintaining documentation in DocBook for
over 10 years and I have been using Publican to publish those
works for about five years. I have a small amount of experience
with MediaWiki but that was a few years ago. A lot of the
documentation I have been a part of is available online and I am
willing to share the URLs when asked.
I also have the following skills:
- average C/C++ programmer
- average Python programmer
- average HTML and CSS coder (web site maintainer and Apache admin)
- KVM/QEMU admin for 50 VMs on a single server
- maintaining a production system for nightly builds of both docs
and program RPMs/DEBs on multiple operating systems
- ex-Project Lead for the ooRexx Project (www.oorexx.org
I have also been using Fedora almost continuously since the first
release. I also have experience with Red Hat, Suse, CentOS,
Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and a few other distributions.
Obviously I am looking for a sponsor and something to start work
on. I am flexible and have a fair amount of time to contribute.
Please let me know what I need to do to get started.
