i'm heving problems with my mail. i'm not sure if this was sent, so i'm
sending it again... if it got sent then sorry... :)
My name is Jony
I'm 24 and have a B.Sc in math & computer science
I'm working as a sysadmin/sysdba on *nux\Oracle envirment for the last 5
years (the *nix includes RHEL 4,5, HP-UX, Tru64)
I've worked with clusters, web application servers and databases, where the
main focus was on the DB and clusters.
I know python, perl, C, C++, Java, PL\SQL and of course bash, tcsh, awk...
I guess my expirence as an Oracle DBA is not much of a use in your
my user name in FAS is cohenjo
I would like to join the following groups sysadmin-devel and sysadmin-dba (I
understand that the 2nd group is restricted, than lets start with devel...)
I guess NOC and tools would fit also...
I'd like to contribute any way I can... just let me know what i can do :)
I'm Alberto from Rome, I'd like to develop and cooperate with the other
members of this great community.
I'm 19 and i've begun to programm in PHP(OOP) since 2004.
First of all, I started to develop Web Apps, then i've read much about
Ruby and C, but i'd like to learn more about Linux and its working.
Thank you very much for your kind attention.
my name is Thierry and while I attempted getting involved circa 2 years
ago  life took its toll in the form of redundancy with its aftermath
and international moves so, now that I am (somewhat) back in control,
I would love to finally get on with it and help.
As the message referenced below states I have been involved with
sysadmin for a reasonably long time and believe I can help.
My current occupation deals with a full overhaul of the monitoring
infrastructure for a public service using Nagios and a lot of packaging
on the side...
I have read the GettingStarted, my FAS username is thierry.

I had a look at adding ivazquez's fas plugin for storing planet feeds
and hackergotchi images in fas. Doing that will allow us to query the
information from other resources (notably, myfedora would like to get
Looking at the code there's a few design decisions we need to make in FAS:
1) It requires its own db table instead of making use of the configs
table. This is different than we thought about for plugins but perhaps
there's no way to shoe-horn what we want into a strict no-new-db-schema
mold? itbegins, I'm curious what you guys have done in zikula for
plugins storing data since you've got a longer history and greater need
for doing this well.
2) It has a group for having a planet feed unlike the present CLA + 1
3) It allows for planet admins who are separate from the sysadmin group.
(I think this is a positive).
4) We might want to associate hackergotchi with person rather than feed.
Pro: We can confidently use it in other places as an icon for the
person. Con: Things like the "Application of the week" feed should have
their own image.
Thoughts, comments, etc welcomed here.
I guess I need to take this to the list for input.
In the last day I set up cgit as a replacement for gitweb. It's only in
testing right now. You can see it here:
I'd like to see it replace gitweb as our web-based git repo browser.
However, it will mean the urls from gitweb won't work anymore for fairly
cgit is substantially faster than gitweb and appears to be much lighter
on resources, too.
I'd like to get some feedback on the negatives/positives to swapping
gitweb for cgit.
