Fedimg welcomes contributors of all levels. Still, it can be a tricky project to jump into because of its relative youth and the challenge of testing a project that utilizes 3rd party services like AWS. This document hopes to alleviate confusion and encourage potential contributors.
Communicating with other contributors
Communication with other contributors is crucial. The best way to discuss
Fedimg development is by joining
#fedora-apps on the
Freenode IRC network. Alternatively, email can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For
questions about the Fedora Infrastructure machines on which Fedimg runs, or
about related Fedmsgs, your best bet is to say something in
Fedimg is used with Git and hosted on
GitHub. If you've managed to improve
Fedimg in some way, make sure to file a pull
request, send in a patch via
email, or at least contact us via IRC. Emails can be sent to email@example.com.
IRC inquries should be sent to
on the Freenode network.
Adding features and tackling issues via code changes are an often-straightforward way to contribute. You can deploy your own instance of Fedimg on your own machine to test your changes before sending them out to the world (see installation and configuration).
In some cases, it may be helpful to contribute some information of your own to this documentation. For example, if you've found a way to make Fedimg work on a special way to suit your particular needs, documenting your process can greatly help others who find themselves in your same position.
Fedimg on the Fedora infrastructure
Two machines on the Fedora infrastructure are devoted to Fedimg: fedimg01 (production) and fedimg01.stg (staging). As one might expect, fedimg01.stg listens to the staging instance of Koji, and fedimg01 listens to production Koji. These machines are managed via Ansible. The repo with our Ansible configuration is here.
