Welcome to Fedora! 歡迎來到Fedora的世界!
Welcome to the Fedora community! We are the people that make the Fedora operating system (and all the other cool stuff around it)! This ticketing project is for new members looking to find their way in the community.
The idea is summarised in https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/fedora-join-is-trying-a-new-people-focused-workflow-for-newcomers/[this Community Blog post].
Workflow Summary
When a new person, say Jane, joins the Fedora community, she may or may not immediately know what she wants to do. If she doesn't, the Join SIG aims to help to explore the community and find a part that suits her interests.
So, when Jane gets in touch with the Join SIG, we go through the following steps together. Jane does not need to know any of this. We, the community, will handle it all :)
We use *Tags* to mark the status of each ticket. Tags starting with `S:` track the status of the ticket from Jane's perspective. Tags starting with `C:` track the status of the ticket from the community's perspective. Tags starting with `I:` track Jane's interests.
First of all, we ask her to create a link:https://accounts.fedoraproject.org/[Fedora contributor account]. We then add Jane to the Fedora Join group on Pagure. This gives Jane permissions to interact with the Pagure projects that Fedora Join has.
Then, we open a new "Hello Fedora World" ticket for Jane on the link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora[Welcome-to-Fedora Pagure repository]. The associated tag is: link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=S%3A+Hello+Fedora+world[S: Hello Fedora World].
We subscribe Jane to the link:https://lists.fedorahosted.org/archives/list/fedora-join@lists.fedoraproject.org/[Fedora Join mailing list]. So people can interact also via e-mail, and can stay informed on what happens in the community. The associated tag is: link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=S%3A+Subscribed[S: Subscribed]. The newcomer can always opt-out and unsubscribe from the mailing list.
We ask Jane to tell the community a little about herself so that people can get to know her. The associated tag is: link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=C%3A+Introduction+requested[C: Introduction requested].
When Jane has introduced herself, we mark the ticket with the link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=S%3A+Introduced+myself[S: Introduced myself] tag.
Jane can comment on the ticket whenever she needs to ask questions, to give feedback, or just to chat. When Jane needs a response, she can use the link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=C%3A+Needs+response[C: Needs response] tag to gain the community's attention.
Jane then spends time exploring Fedora, speaking to people, learning how things work; all at her own pace. Jane is not expected to do any tasks at this time. The idea is for Jane to get comfortable with the Fedora community first and then dive into contributing by doing work.
From time to time, we check to see how Jane is doing. Each time we do so, we set a new tag:
At the first progress check, we will set the link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=C%3A+Progress+check+1[C: Progress check 1] tag.
If we do not hear from Jane in sometime, such as two weeks, we do a second progress check and set the link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=C%3A+Progress+check+2[C: Progress check 2] tag.
If we do not hear from Jane again, say for another two weeks, we do a third and final progress check. We set the link:https://pagure.io/fedora-join/Welcome-to-Fedora/issues?tags=C%3A+Progress+check+3+-+Final[C: Progress check 3 - Final] tag.
If we don't get a response in the next 7 days, We would tell her that we've not seen activity and we'll have no choice to close the ticket.
