Shlomi Fish Mentoring Others in Open Source/Open Content

I, Shlomi Fish, am willing to mentor newcomers with their first steps into the world of contributing to free and open source software (FOSS) and free and open content, whether in my own projects or in projects I’m not directly involved in. By mentoring I will provide guidance into how to contribute and assistance.

Before contacting me, make sure you are serious about contributing and that you won’t waste my time by asking me for help. If you are, then please pick a project you’d like to contribute to (it can be any project, but naturally I can provide more assistance with a project which I’ve been involved with) and contact me via Instant Messaging, as E-mail is far less effective for that.

Until now, all the people who contacted me about mentoring them, have lost interest after contacting me and failed to produce anything substantial, but I still have not lost hope.

Thanks
