It's really nice to write this post on this group :) I've been the sysadmin
for the last 10+ years (with RHEL on servers, Fedora on desktop and
Slackware on playboxes). I would love to help You :)
I live in Poland, so my clock is set to CET (UTC+1).
My freenode nick is: docent
My skills consists of general sysadmin abilities (I'm currently RHCE, but
also love to work with network issues, have quite good websecurity
knowledge, currently doing RHCSS). I can write scripts in Python / Bash /
Perl; I also know C (but in the beginning I'd rather focus on knowing You
and Fedora project env, so I'm sure that low - level programming would not
be the case at the beginning). I'm big fan of Ganglia monitoring system (I
saw You're using CollectD - that's also great solution. I've got deep
knowledge of Nagios. I also have experience in creating workflows in issue
tracker systems like Jira (I've been Jira admin for a while, also I was a
team leader in Ops, so have some general leadership knowledge - but
honestly I'd rather focus on classical sysadmin work - but always can talk
about team issues).
My general goal in joining Fedora team is to find a way back to low - level
programming. About 10 years ago I programmed a lot in C, knew much of
syscalls but than just lost it during subsequent years. But until that -
I'd like to help You with sysadmin work, see how it's in a such great team
(I worked a lot with multi - cultural teams, but those were classical non -
Open Source related jobs) and get some new challenges.
I've checked issues under
and honestly there
are some that I don't understand at all, but also there's quite a lot of
those that I could take care of. But I'm little confused as there're issues
which looks really outdated.
Despite my family, job, hobbies (cycling, ARMs, also I've got server in my
basement on which I do some developer work - did I write that I really love
networking? I got some Cisco outdated hardware which I play sometimes) I
think that in the beginning I could contribute about 2-3h per week and from
this point check how it's going.
I think that's all - it was really nice to see You guys in LinuxCon (I was
there in Prague 2 years ago and Barcelona last year; unfortunately didn't
make it this year). I'm really looking forward to see You next year,
