Re: Apropos of spam..
this discussion seems to be a nice opportunity to say hello and ask for
help... so, well - hi.
i subscribed to the mailinglist because i was curious about the issues
female developers might talk/ debate about and get myself a clearer
impression of it all, but apparently it didn't work out.
therefore it's probably the best tactic to just speak up and ask
i'm not much of a programmer. i recently started to translate some docs
(into german) for kde (only because of a friend who does that and who
helps me with all my stupid questions) and enjoy it so far, but would
rather get involved with debian itself. yes, i also subscribed to the
german translator list for debian, but i'm still far too shy to
introduce myself there and ask for guidance.
i am willing and able to learn almost everything (as i also have a lot
of free time..) but i don't know where to start and whom to speak with
and in which ways i can contribute, so i'd love to be given any piece of
advice. (yeah, i know, i could just read the websites to gather
information, but i feel more comfortable speaking directly to people.
especially women. it's stupid and a prejudice, but i'm still afraid of
being laughed at [by men] for asking "dumb" questions and not knowing
everything by myself.)
so it seems this list is not yet totally unnecessary,
at least not for me.
so if anyone has any idea, please let me know.
