The main page for Summer Coding 2010 ideas is Summer Coding 2010 ideas - Welcome Wizard.


Status: Idea

Summary of idea: A step by step process of joining the Fedora Project.

Contacts: Mike McGrath

Mentor(s): Mike McGrath

Notes: Right now when new users sign up for an account, they have NO idea what to do next. One common thing is applying for a bunch of seemingly random groups, then trying to ssh to fedorapeople. Then just having your applications sit there... forever never getting approved.

I'd like for the account system to have a simple wizard interface (via a plugin), welcomes users, explains how Fedora works and explains how to apply for groups and what to expect. We may have to come up with a standard way to apply for groups, to be discussed.
