Hello I’m AppelonD and now a Fedora BugZapper

I finally decided to apply for a group in the Fedora ecosystem, on there would help out Fedora. After a long night of searching I found the BugZapper and the Proven testers to fit me just perfect. I then applied for the BugZappers, and got accepted.

Next step for me was to find a component I would do useful with, and from the long list I went with the Anaconda group/component. The following evening I dropped by the FedoraBugzapper channel on Freenode, where I introduced my self once more, and got started on triangulating bugs. I think I had a little Goofy getting started, I guess I was a little scared of closing some old bugs there still had value, so starting from the bottom and up, I poked around some of the oldest bugs, and by the help of fenris02 on IRC I learn about bodhi and asked for some comments updates about relevance still applied with latest release and upstreem versions of Fedora.

Today I then closed my first bug, after confirming it worked with latest Fedora release. 1 down 176 to go 🙂

I still have some Learning to do when it comes to different states I can put bugs in to, but I guess I’ll grow with the challenges…

I Just wanted to give a shout out about my little side project. My new OpenSource homepage, which I’m making all the way from scratch using OpenSource tools like Inkscape, Gimp and Eclipse to generate my HTML5 CSS3 site on top of Joomla The code can be found on Github if you want to play around  with it, I do have plans to make some serious CSS3 animation, feel free to comment on what you like and what you would think looked better e.g. colour for navigation menu etc.  If you like, I have entered my introduction mail to the Fedora test mailing list under the “Read more tag”

Appelon in Chinese

This I "Appelon" my middle name in Chinese, if anybody who speak Chinese, would help me add a capital D to the end of it I would be very pleased...

BTW. I know this is called my Danish blog, but I guess it will change to my Danish/English blog in the further
