All of these can be good! "Validate Releases" and "Test Updates" are
basically sub-tasks of "QA Testing". To get started with QA in general, head
over to the Fedora Test mailing list
and send a Self Introduction.
We're in the planning/development phase for Fedora Linux 36, so validation
isn't currently in progress, but you can start testing updates now simply by
enabling `updates-testing` on your systems and providing feedback to
updates using the Bodhi https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/
system. ((That front page
has links to "critical path" and security updates which really need
attention. Often these updates have linked bugs and test cases which you can
make sure are resolved. (This is a nice way to earn some Fedora Badges, too:
For the SIGs... if you're an XFCE user, _and_ really want to dive into
something where you have a lot of freedom but also a lot of everything is up
to you, that's probably a good one. That's because the XFCE spin is a side
project of one or two other interested people, and hasn't had a lot going
on. I'm sure they'd appreciate the help, but there isn't a lot of obvious
structure to plug into.
The Server SIG is a little more organized, with active meetings and
membership in a formal Server Working Group. See
for getting started there.
