Outreach Program For Women 2013/Mentors
MENTORS AND PROJECTS
Here is a list of some nice folks in Fedora who can help you make your first contribution as part of the Outreach Program for Women. Once you decide what project you are interested in contributing to and explore the information available on that project's wiki, you can introduce yourself to the project's mentor and ask them any questions you have about contributing to the project. The mentor can help you identify an easy task to take on, introduce you to how work gets done in the project (for example, for design projects, they will introduce you to Inkscape), or guide you with development tasks such as building the project's code, identify an easy bug to start with, and help you with your patch for that bug. The mentor can guide you through your subsequent contributions and point to the resources for solving particular issues.
Typically, there are other people on the project's IRC channel, who can help you too. So please ask your questions in the channel. You can address the mentor directly by using their nick in your question. E.g. if the mentor's IRC nick is kelly, you can say "kelly: hi! I just built project-foo and looking for a bug to fix - I found bug 123 and bug 321 in the project's bugzilla that both look like something I can try to work on, but I wanted to see if you have any recommendation, since you are listed as a mentor for the project".
You can find the information about the projects on the project pages they have listed below. The link next to the project name is the name of the project's IRC channel on irc.freenode.org. The string next to each mentor's name is their IRC nick. You can learn more about the use of IRC for Fedora development and how to install an IRC client here. You can find out other contact information and more about each mentor on their individual pages.
If you are interested in finding a mentor for a project not listed here, you can look at the project's commit log to see who are its most frequent contributors and try to find them on IRC. You can also ask on the #fedora-women IRC channel.
Mentors, please read the information for mentors before adding yourself and your project to this page.
