Most of the starters are not able to get all the information he/she requires while onboarding. A well-maintained Landing page is what they need, which should give them a clear and overall idea of what Fedora does and what are the fields that they find interesting. This will be a proper head start, and later when they are sure, guidance can be sought by Fedora Join SIG members. An assembly of all the required resources at one platform will not only help the newcomer to get a clear idea of what he/she will be doing with the different areas in the Fedora community, it will also help clear the doubts of the necessary question that might be running without the acknowledgment of any third person (sometimes starter who are beginners to open source feel shy to talk in a public platform).
Planning a better New comer’s landing page
We should update this https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join to provide the redirection saying it is not maintained, for recent update go to this https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Fedora-Join/issue/161
New Comer Landing page should have these proper redirections to these since these pages any newcomer would need to know Fedora well.
Wcidff (which also need an update) (https://whatcanidoforfedora.org/en/)
Ideation of getting consistent contributors for Fedora!
Organizing an Outreach Program
I was thinking if we could do an outreach program for a short span(like 40-60 days) once a year, which would be something similar to that of a GSoC/Outreachy, but it would be solely organized by Fedora.
It would draw the attention of people who want to be a part of the community and do great projects.
It would be a great opportunity, where we could get potential long term contributors for Fedora.
We could incorporate projects that require prior attention like
Working on the Docs etc
Source of Inspiration - Season of KDE(https://season.kde.org/)
Proposing Wcidff as a GSoC/Outreachy project would be a good idea.
(More project related discussions is here https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/what-to-do-with-wcidff-warning/13302)
A proper guideline for contributors to get a detailed idea of the areas that wcidff has like Design, Artwork Requests, Coding, etc.
(A docs.f.o would be great)
Converting this article to a docs.fp.o page might be helpful
(Suggestion- It might fit into CommOps docs https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/commops/ )
Apps. Fedora (https://apps.fedoraproject.org/) is a great resource for boarders to get a clear idea of different applications Fedora. But eventually, the site might go down as CPE Team might not want to maintain it. So, we should either get an alternative or maintain it.
These were some of the ideas I thought might need some limelight and some I personally want to present.
Any suggestions would be highly helpful!
