My name is Patrick W. Barnes My Internet nickname is "The N-Man", and thus my name will usually appear as 'Patrick "The N-Man" Barnes'
I live in Amarillo, Texas (USA)
I am a Systems Administrator for CTL Technologies
My Goals and Qualifications:
I have been using, testing, monitoring, and assisting other users and developers with the Fedora Project for some time now, and I would like to start making more active contributions.
I would like to help with the Fedora Project in as many ways as possible. I have a variety of useful skills. I currently distribute the Fedora Core releases on systems my company sells, and have a great deal of exposure to end-user feedback. We also use Fedora Core releases and the Rawhide branch internally. I am a programmer and a web designer, as well as a system and network administrator. I am also an excellent writer, and that is the skill that I would like to contribute with first.
I hope to improve documentation and tutorial options for users who are new to Linux and Fedora. I would also like to contribute to the user-friendly qualities of Fedora Core. My wide variety of skills and experience will allow me to write on a large variety of topics. I do an excellent job of staying on top of emerging technologies and changes occuring within the project.
To start things off, I'd like to help in organizing the existing information in the Extras wiki and making the wiki more concise to reduce errors and questions and improve productivity. First, I would like to write a quick page to field some of the questions regarding Google's Summer of Code and provide information about high-interest, unmaintained (or missing) projects. Please let me know if there are any questions. I look forward to contributing.
