> Hello everyone,
> Hope you are well.
> I'm happy to reach out to you via this email, since I've been looking
forward to joining the Fedora project for some time now. I wouldn't
normally send long emails, so I apologize in advance 😀
> I don't have formal qualifications in any of this, but mostly different
levels of knowledge on various topics.
> Like most self-learners come to realize, connecting the dots is always a
monster of its own.
> To give you an overview of what's in my pockets:
> • Can work on a terminal and find my way around new stuff.
> • Can create basic scripts.
> • General knowledge of the OS
> • Very basic knowledge of JAVA, Python and SQL
> • Problem solving: though I come from a completely different
background (audit/tax), I do spend my days figuring out stuff. I might need
to go through a learning curve in many aspects, but I come equipped with
patience and the will to find solutions.
> • Heavy coffee drinker
> What do I want?
> I want to gain in-depth knowledge of Linux-based systems, both due to
personal interest (mainly) and because I daydream of changing my career
path to something related to this (tax is not the gratest source of joy
I've come across).
> I think that going for the RHCSA certification would be a good start, so
I'm mostly interested in sysadmin tasks.
> I'm also interested in development, but I don't want to get ahead of
> That said, it is hard for me to retain things in my head unless I have
used them to solve practical problems. For this reason, I want to make
myself of use to other people, help solve problems, and hope I get to learn
from experienced users along the way.
> You can find me in IRC/freenode as hydro_carbon.
> Questions for the team:
> • Is there something specific you'd like me to get involved with?
> • I'm currently going through the documentation (
), and I know I'll be
joining the apprentice's team; I'm not sure if you would like me to start
with something specific.
> • Thursday meetings - any recommended browser IRC-client I can use
at work? (can't install stuff on that computer)
> • I created the Fedora account and an email address was generated
*(a)fedoraproject.org, to redirect any traffic to my personal account.
However, this is not working. Did I miss anything?

I’m fairly new around here myself, but here are some answers to your
1. A good starting point is to look at the issues marked as "easyfix” 
2. I use IRCCloud ; they have free and pay plans
3. For the email alias to be active, you need to have signed the CLA and
be part of a non-CLA group 
Hope that helps a bit.
