IRC Handle: spetry
Skills: Scripting Shell and Perl, but prefer shell. Some C, TCL/TK,
and lots of real world experience. 20 Years of Unix support and 14
with Linux. Supported numerous environments including DOD,
Engineering, Financial, SW Dev, and more. I'd like to get better
with C and of course overall knowledge can always improve (there is
no such thing as knowing it all, or knowing to much).
Immediate interests: Fedora 15 shipped with bad init scripts for
ypserv and ypbind. I'd also like to investigate an improvement to
ypinit to update NISDOMAIN or YPDOMAIN in configuration files and
configuration scripts. Can work to modify scripts for sysconfig as
well. More as time allows and needs arrise.
Welcome. It sounds to me like you are more interested in helping out
with packaging and OS building than Infrastructure.
I'd suggest getting in touch with the maintainers of the yp/nis
packages you want to help improve and offer your services. You may want
to file bugs with patches attached.
If you're interested in infrastructure (we run the servers that build
Fedora), we can help you out further here. :)
