We have a wiki page that covers using IRC. Maybe you could start by
giving it a read?
I am a desktop user of Fedora (17) and
feel passionately about the benefits of Linux (Fedora) as an OS and
Great to hear!
My main interests lie in Marketing and would love to eventually become
an ambassador of Fedora.
To get started as an Ambassador, please refer to the detailed process
here. However, since an Ambassador needs to go out and speak about
fedora, it's features, and what's new, we advise folks to first join one
of the sub teams. Once you've spent time working with a sub-team, you
know a lot more about the inner workings and the community in general. I
see you've already given the marketing list a shout. (I'll reply to that
email on the mktg list itself ;))
I have had some limited experience of marketing in my day job and chair
a forum for 30 or so people in relation to my full time job which is all
about bringing people together. I have produced posters/flyers and had
to promote various projects.
Ah! Looks like you're into designing too then? ;)
A couple of goals I have for the Fedora Project are a marked increase in
uptake by the general computing population, and a clearer, wider
understanding of the importance of FOSS etc. In my area it is relatively
unheard of and I would like some support in marketing to as many people
as possible in a clear non-to-technical way.
Awesome goals to get started with. We'll see how we can help you achieve
them. I'm moving our conversation to the marketing team mailing list
where current members of the team will be able to provide input.
I hope that I can begin to get actively involved in this community!
Please help me get started!
I apologise for the delay in the response. The mailing lists have too
many emails coming in, and some tend to slip through :/
Please only print if necessary.
