Have you found the Proxy Maintainers project via
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Proxy_Maintainers yet?

Your best bet is probably to log into Freenode IRC and meet the other
devs, get settled in, try your hand at some ebuilds, etc and then you
can get a feel for what goes on. Someone will then pick you up, and take
you forward.

[gentoo-dev] Looking for a mentor

2016-09-17 Thread Kacper Kołodziej
Hello!

I'm interested in becoming a Gentoo Developer. I'm familiar with C++, Python,
Git and some others.

I'd like to begin with maintaining some package. I'm looking for a mentor who
will introduce me and help with quizes mentioned on Gentoo's 'Get Involved -
Become a Developer' page.

I'll be happy if you give me some advice on what should I begin with. Maybe
maintaining packages isn't good idea at the begining?

I presume no-one has yet contacted Iain. I asked him to mail this 
message to the mailing list in the hopes of finding a mentor for him. It 
would really help Gentoo if devs would actively pick up new recruits. If 
you need any help with mentoring etc don't hesitate to contact us. We 
even have a doc to get mentors started:

actually I had philantrop offer (many thanks, will get back to you ASAP)
and 2 or 3 comments on IRC (thanks also :)

I was going to reply when I'd said OK to philantrop, and he'd said OK to
my OK, but I got stuck in an infinite loop...

I got your mail and I'll catch you on IRC this weekend. :-)

Let me break it: Ok. ;-)

[gentoo-dev] looking for a mentor

2008-01-30 Thread Iain Buchanan
Hi all,


I've been talking with jsin about becoming a dev, specifically to help
with SynCE.  I'm working on ebuilds for a major update, which are mostly
done, except for a couple of niggling problems.

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178807
http://www.synce.org/moin/IainBuchanan

jsin is a bit busy (and not at 6 months yet) so he can't mentor me,
although he still offers help as time permits.  I would therefore like
to see if anyone wants to volunteer their mentoring prowess to get me to
developer status :)

I've done the quiz (a couple of small holes), and I've read the
developer handbook and various other bits of doco around the web.  I'm
active in gentoo-user, and recently I've been silently watching
gentoo-dev gentoo-project and gentoo-dev-announce.  Oh, and I've been
using for about ... 4 or 5 years.

I'm also usually on Freenode as iaindb.

Feel free to ask me any questions.

many thanks,
