At the first of every month(or so), I am going to be sending out an
email like this one. I would like feedback on how things are going for
I'd like to ask for everyone to send me a quick reply with the
following data or anything related you can think of that might help us
make the apprentice program more useful.
0. Whats your fedora account system login?
1. Have you logged in and used your fi-apprentice membership to look
our machines/setup in the last month? Do you plan to?
No, I haven't - I'm not sure what plans I have, although being able to
access testing environments might help with part 2 below
2. Has it helped you decide any area you wish to focus on or contribute
I think I'd like to help by providing advice on Ansible code reviews, but
not sure how best to do thta
3. Have you looked at or been able to work on any of the fi-apprentice
4. Do you still wish to be a member of the group? If not (for whatever
reason) could you provide any hints to help others down the road?
I'm not sure - see other caveats below.
5. Is there any help or communication or ideas you have that would help
you do any of the above?
If my help is useful, if I knew how to test playbook runs on Fedora
infrastructure, how best to review other people's changes and how best
to contribute my own changes, that would help - I'm more used to a gitlab/
github pull request review system, than email patches, but I'm sure I can
cope with the latter.
6. What do you find to be the hardest part of getting involved?
Finding things to work on? Getting attention from others to help you?
Finding tickets in your interest area?
See part 5.
7. Have you been able to make any weekly irc meetings? Do you find
helpful or interesting?
No, my understanding is that they're on at 5am AEST (Australia/Brisbane)
which is not at all convenient for me.
8. Have you logged into our Gobby instance and read/seen/added to our
meeting agenda? https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Gobby
9. What is the furthest place you have ever traveled from your home?
I'm from the UK and live in Australia. I have been to Dublin which is
from Brisbane. In the opposite direction I've been to Hobart, which is
from Truro in the UK.
Any other general feedback is also quite welcome, including
improvements to this email, the wiki page, etc.
Any folks I do not hear from in the next week will be removed from the
group. (Note that it's easy to be readded when you have time or
whatever and it's nothing at all personal, we just want to keep the
group up to date with active folks).
Thanks, and looking forward to your feedback!
I hope my responses are useful - my commitment hasn't been particularly
strong - I'm keen to help the Fedora project with my Ansible expertise at
a suggestions/review level, but if I need to get more deeply involved to do
that I'll try and devote more time in coming months.
