My name is Aaron Faanes. I am a Fedora 13 user, Wiki contributor, and frequent hacker.

I may be contacted via email at dafrito@gmail.com. I can also be found on irc.freenode.net with the nickname "dafrito" on many of the Fedora-related channels, such as #fedora-qa, #fedora-devel, and #fedora-bugzappers.

[edit] Contributions

My work on the Fedora Project wiki varies pretty widely, from minor edits to significant new content. I initially worked on tickets from QA, such as editing Adam Williamson's draft on proven testers. I then started contributing new pages like Help:Style guide. I've also partaken in some maintenance tasks such as performing user page migrations. I've also created some useful infoboxes, such as Template:Infobox group and Template:Infobox package.

For future work, my emphasis seems to be on making information more efficient for users and contributors. That usually comes down to creating templates to provide quick summaries, and to also provide a easily recognizable means of navigation. I'd like to see much more integration between pages, and also see integration between other documentation projects, such as fedorasolved.org and especially docs.fedoraproject.org. The docs are far too high-quality and information-rich for the wiki not to link to them.

I've also proposed a change of naming conventions for project pages. For example, I believe project pages like Women, QA, and Infrastructure should actually be named "Fedora Women", "Fedora QA", etc.
