Personal Information
Fedora is a very visible and transparent project, which means that 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.

Join the mailing list

To join the mailing list, you must subscribe on lists.fedoraproject.org. Our mailing list is a key part of how SIGs/Python communicates, and a lot of important news and discussion are shared through our mailing list.

Send a self-introduction

Send a self-introduction to the Python SIG mailing list explaining a bit about yourself. Are you new to contributing to Fedora? If so, tell us why you're interested in contributing or what interests you most. Already a contributor? Share what other areas of Fedora you are working in and your role in the Project.

In addition to this, tell us what areas of Python SIG you are most interested in contributing to and how WE can help YOU get started.

Join #fedora-python on IRC

Your next step should be to join the #fedora-python IRC channel on the FreeNode IRC network. A lot of our discussion and planning happens in real-time on IRC, and it's the best place to meet some of the team and get a view of what's happening in the group.

Get your hands dirty

Now, according to your preferred area of contribution you can start with your work right away. Don't hesitate to ask for help on the IRC channel or on the mailing list.
