Re: questions and questions
It sounds like I should do some reading (thanks for the link) ... I'll
try and poke around this evening see what I can do ...
I am honestly not terribly picky in regards to what I work on ...
In case it helps you provide me more information my skills are primarily:
1.) 6 x 4 month co-operative work placements doing C/C++ development.
2.) 3 years embedded C++ dev for vxworks and some GNU/Linux (mostly
3.) Almost 3 years of software modeling tools development in C#.
I will definitely take a look at Debian-Edu this evening ...
Thanks for your response ... I think once I am settle working on a few
things I will hopefully be able to contribute effectively ...

Thanks for your offer, you are welcome.
There are a lot of possibilities where you can contribute.
You can help to translate, you can find a new software which you want to
debianize (package) and then ask for a sponsor to get it into Debian archive,
or you can look at the WNPP bugs and help to fix them by packaging, or you
can look at the Release Critical (RC) Bugs and find out how to solve them and
then attach a patch so that the maintainer can easily apply the patch and fix
the problem or you can join subprojects of Debian and help them
(a good choice is Debian-Edu, if you want to contribute there just write a
mail to email@example.com. or to me ;) ) but there are also other subprojects
in Debian where you can help.
The question is where you are interested in.
I am not familiar with how you track bugs etc with debian ... so be
gentle I may need some ramp up time :-)
You find nice HowTos on http://www.debian.org/Bugs/
Hope this helps you to make your decision.
