Self Introduction: Matthew Daniels

Hey everyone,

My name is Matthew Daniels and I'm an undergraduate studying Physics
and Astronomy at Clemson University, although my hometown is
Charleston, SC.  I've been using Linux as my primary OS for about 5
years now, and I've been using Fedora since FC6 came out in '06.

I actually have done a little bit of contract programming, and my
coding skills are mediocre.  I'm comfortable is Perl and Java, and
can, for the most part, hold my own in C and Python.  But, this is
probably not sufficient for making large-scale contributions to the
Fedora Project.  However, I regard myself a pretty good writer, and I
recently realized that I actually kind of enjoy writing program
documentation.  So, since Fedora -- and Linux, in general -- have been
so good to me, I've made it one of my personal goals as of late to
start trying to give back to the OSS community.  I felt that actually
joining a project and getting my hands dirty would be a good way to do

Accordingly, this is my first time contributing to a project like
this.  In the future, I think I may also wish to become a Fedora
Ambassador and try to push Fedora with Clemson's Linux User Group,
since they're sorta just stuck on Ubuntu right now.  But for now, I'd
like to take things one step at a time, and contribute to the
fedora-docs group as much as possible.  Hopefully, you guys have
something I can do; even if it's just cleaning up broken links for
now, that's fine.  I just want to help.

So... that's my self introduction!  If I missed anything, or if anyone
has any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
