Hello

So Linux is great and I love the spirit of community (see the posts in the "Why I use Linux" thread). But I do not want to only take, it is my turn to give back.

I checked Fedora's website, specifically the section about different projects within the distribution and there has not seem to be much progress in translating the documentation into Polish. So I sent an e-mail offering my services to one of the maintainers but did not get any answer. I know, they are probably very busy so no hard feelings on my part for no-reply. Does anyone know how to join that project??? Can anyone contribute to it or is it a privilege reserved only for Certified Linux Gods? I really want to do something for Linux and this seem to be a great opportunity for me as I am not a programmer.

Maybe someone from Fedora project is reading this great forum???

Thanks for any help.

Grzegorz L.

thanks for a compliment; i will keep banging on Fedora's door and maybe someone will open; right now I am sniffing around their website to find any clue or another contact address; if Fedora will not answer, i will try to get in touch with authors of applications i use most and offer them translation;

there was a pretty good article in Linux Format about different ways to contribute and it inspired me to do something; turns out you do not have to a high-grade programmer, there are many different ways to help out in development; you just have to be willing to put some effort;
