I have a major complaint. I'm enjoying spending way too much time on this hill. Half of these fools don't even have electricity, then they want to laugh at me because of the nosebleed section I'm sitting in.... Ahhhh, the days of our lives.

Asked by Karl Haines

You read it, I think you have a slight idea. I would really love to get involved. My career has gone down the hill with the economy, and I'm really excited to do some pro-bono work! I would like to develop for Ubuntu, Debian, or Gentoo. I have read over the massive documents on Ubuntu membership, but it seems like I might need a mentor there.

Do you have any kindness in you that might point me in the right direction as far as meeting someone who might consider to be my mentor? Thank you so much in advance.

One project I'm very interest in is fake-pae, but the opportunity to be involved in any at all would be a treasure, especially a large one like GNOME. I would do ANYtHING to be able to work on the team with the Gnome guys!

PS: I also spend at least 8 hours a day in the IRC rooms, and would even have no problem writing technical documentation. If if helps at all, I wrk professionally as a web developer, LAMP environments preferably, but I have written many backends using Perl, Python, C, and just about anything under the sun!

Hi Karl,

 There is plenty of dev work up for grabs. Just take your pick

1. 13.10 (Saucy) is now past feature freeze so this is all about fixing bugs!
2. packaging 3.10 for the gnome3-team ppa's, this generally involves porting patches etc. so far we only have the core stuff up, lots of other packages to be done.
3. longer term there are bunch of things we are looking to fix upstream (for 3.12)

your best bet is jump on our IRC channel and chat with me (darkxst) or jbicha!


Can you help with this problem?
