While I'm confident neither with regard to my talent nor the extent of my free time (http://jmbuser.livejournal.com/1450.html), I certainly would like to pitch in with the documentation project if there's a perception I might do more good than damage. I certainly have gotten a lot of mileage out of the Fedora project over the past few years and, as a goal, would love to give a little back. Having a substantial degree of scientific writing experience, I might be useful with "volunteering to edit draft documents" or with "providing feedback on the draft documentation published on the Wiki and the mailing list" (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DocsProject/Join) if grammar/structure/clarity issues are significant. On the other hand, If I sound relatively useless, I won't be offended with a candid 'go away'. pub 1024D/332685A5 2007-04-17 Key fingerprint = B517 98A4 1109 A813 C8D1 95C4 728E 5444 3326 85A5 uid David A Thompson <thompson fresno edu> sub 1024g/C86DB82C 2007-04-17 David Alan Thompson -- Faculty in Biology Fresno Pacific University 1717 S Chestnut Ave Fresno CA 93702 559-453-5504 thompson fresno edu http://biology.fresno.edu/thomp PS Other 'introductory'-type material: I am a biologist/chemist by trade, although I've been playing with computers back since trying to program my own version of PacMan in machine language on my Commodore 64 back in junior high. I've enjoyed using various versions of unix and linux back since my dad bought me an old Sun in the 90's. These days my 'programming' efforts are mostly confined to cheesy perl scripts and entertaining myself with lisp.
