    4. Fedora-Join general goal: "Make it easier for people to join the community and contribute" (FranciscoD, 15:15:22)

    7. Our specific aim is given here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Join_SIG#Aim (FranciscoD, 15:16:55)
    8. "The Fedora Join SIG aims to set up and maintain channels that let prospective contributors engage with the community." (FranciscoD, 15:17:06)

    14. usually, someone turns up, after some surfing picks a team to join up, introduces themselves to the team members, gets to know them, works, makes friends, maybe even finds a mentor in the team, maybe begins to help another team later and then makes friends there, and repeat. (FranciscoD, 15:28:20)
    15. someone turns up, finds us cool contributors hanging around here, speaks to us, makes friends, gets to know how the community works, our philosophy (and finds it awesome) and what teams we have, finds a mentor (community mentor as opposed to team specific mentor), picks one or more teams to work in, becomes a part of the community, not just a specific team in the community. (FranciscoD, 15:28:51)
    16. newbies are not limited to team specific relationships (FranciscoD, 15:29:49)
    17. newbies that join together can work together, even if they work in different teams (we're all always closer to our classmates than to seniors/juniors) (FranciscoD, 15:29:57)
    18. they get a much better overall idea of how the community functions and are exposed to the workflows of different teams through us (including tooling, admin, process, goals, tasks, ninjas) (FranciscoD, 15:30:08)
    19. they go on to develop into contributors that also have a good idea of how the multiple arms of the community work to keep Fedora going (FranciscoD, 15:30:17)
    20. AGREED: (+1:4, 0:0, -1:0) Fedora Join limit itself to forming and maintaining channels that let prospective contributors engage with the community. The Aims on the wiki page stand: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Join_SIG#Aim (FranciscoD, 15:44:47)
