Hi, I am new to open source and would be happy to help out in any way i
can. I am very eager to learn new things, Python is where I am
strongest and where I would like to start out.
I would appreciate directions on where to start and I look forward to
working with you.
Hello Oliver! Welcome to the Infrastructure team mailing list – we're
happy to hear you're interested in contributing.
As I just mentioned in a previous post on the list, you will find no
shortage of Python applications in Fedora's infrastructure. Many of the
applications throughout our Infrastructure are Python-powered. It's
worth checking out some general guidelines that will help set you up for
success in contributing to Fedora Infrastructure as a developer. Check
out this page for getting started:
That page also mentions in the Infrastructure Apprentice program, which
you can check out more of here:
You can find a GitHub organization for the Fedora Infrastructure team
and sort the repositories by programming language. You should be able to
see many different Python projects in Fedora there:
However, there are many more projects hosted on Pagure, Fedora's
official git forge. You can browse through projects here, although I
don't know if there is a way to sort them by language.
Hopefully you find all of this helpful! It's a good idea to go through
some of these links before getting fully started. For choosing a
project, I recommend browsing around until you find a project that is
personally interesting to you, and then seek out some of the lead
developers of it on IRC in #fedora-apps to see how you can help.
As always, if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask them here
on the mailing list or in IRC! If you're available to join the
Infrastructure team meetings, that would also be excellent. Looking
forward to seeing you around! :)
