If you know something about Drupal or are a fast learner, we welcome you! We are working on designing the next group of features for Insight.  Here are the use cases we've outlined thus far:
  
In order to help with the theme, you'll have to first set up a [[How to install Drupal|local copy of Drupal]] on your computer.  Once you have a local copy of Drupal set up, you'll need to check out the current theme files. The repo is located at git://git.fedorahosted.org/git/fedora-insight-theme.git.

<pre>git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/git/fedora-insight-theme.git</pre>
+
* [[Insight Drupal 7 Dependencies]]
 
+
Alternatively, people who are a part of the (FAS) group gitfedora-insight-theme can check out using the SSH method:
+
 
+
<pre>git clone ssh://git.fedorahosted.org/git/fedora-insight-theme.git</pre>
+
 
+
Once you have checked out the files for the theme, install the theme as follows:
+
 
+
# Copy the "fedora" folder within the checkout you just downloaded into the '''/etc/drupal/all/themes''' folder in your local Drupal sandbox install.
+
# Log into your local Drupal sandbox instance as the site administrator.
+
# Go to Administration > Layout > Theme, then select the Fedora theme.
+
 
+
To contribute patches back, you can either email your patches to the {{fplist|logistics}} mailing list, or you can apply for the [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/group/view/gitfedora-insight-theme git group for the theme] in the Fedora Account System to commit to the repository.
+
 
+
If you are fixing a Trac ticket with your patch, you should update that ticket '''and''' email the logistics list to let people know what you've worked on.  This helps keep everyone informed, but it also lets the list know about your contribution to the team so you can be recognized appropriately for your assistance.

Fedora Insight is a Drupal-based website that serves as a place to publish and share news, articles related to Fedora and Fedora marketing materials in various formats. Insight makes it easy for users, developers, and journalists -- people who aren't yet a part of the Fedora contributor community -- to keep up with recent highlights without following a dozen different blogs and mailing lists.

This wiki page is for people interested in working on and contributing to Fedora Insight itself.

How to help

Important.png
Personal Information
Fedora is a very visible and transparent project. Its mailing lists are archived and mirrored in many places on the internet outside of our control. Please use caution when sharing personal information with Fedora on a mailing list, because it is not possible for us to remove any postings from the wider Internet universe after they are sent. For more details, please refer to Fedora's Privacy Policy.

Decide what you want to do

I want to work on the theme and appearance of Insight. Join the Design team, and look at our page on How to work on the Insight theme.
I want to help develop and maintain the Insight system. Introduce yourself to the team (see below), and look at our page on How to develop for Insight.
I want to represent Fedora in the Drupal community. Join the Ambassadors team -- being a Fedora representative is more than just being a fan. We would love to have you on our team once you are versed in how the project works.

Become part of our team

  1. Join the logistics mailing list and introduce yourself. Let us know:
    • Your name
    • Your skills/experiences/interests -- Even if you're active within another Fedora team, there may be other Fedora folks who haven't had the chance to meet you yet, so let them know who you are and that you're around!
    • The first task or ticket you plan to work on (see "Current issues" above) -- if you want to work on something else, tell us what it is
  2. (optional) Check out any other #Communications channels that you might be interested in.

Development

If you know something about Drupal or are a fast learner, we welcome you! We are working on designing the next group of features for Insight. Here are the use cases we've outlined thus far:

We're also starting to look forward to Drupal 7, and have started documenting critical path requirements for a future migration to Drupal 7 from Dupal 6:

Marketing

The Marketing team will be publishing its release deliverables on Fedora Insight, and will be the second users of the platform after #FWN.

We're currently figuring out additional content (other than our release deliverables) that would go into the #Content_workflow. Our current thinking is several ideas that have been filed as multiple tickets in the Marketing trac instance.

If you want to help with the Marketing side of things, do the following:

  1. Follow the instructions in the #How to help section of this page.
  2. Join the Marketing team, if you aren't already a member.
  3. Email the marketing list and let the Marketing team know you're interested in helping with Fedora Insight.

Packaging

We could always use packaging help for Drupal and related modules. If you see an unassigned (NEW) bug in this tracking list, that means there is a package review needed so we can make more progress. The Package Review Process page will show you how to do a review. It takes some time to do a good package review, but in the process you can learn some technical skills and about how this process ensures a good experience for Fedora users installing software.

Content workflow
