Happy Holidays from the Fedora Mentors team!  We want to bring in the
new year with the Fedora Project in an awesome way.  We want to boost
the Fedora contributor base just in time to help us shove Fedora Core 5
out the door.  Here is the Fedora Mentors New Year's Challenge:

Fedora Fans (end-users):
So you've enjoyed using Fedora, or have had a little trouble and gotten
help from the Fedora Community, but have you ever thought about how you
can make a significant contribution to this great project?  You might be
surprised as to just how many ways there are for you to contribute.  Our
challenge for you is simple: get started as a Fedora contributor.  As a
subscriber to this list, you've already taken the first steps.  The
Fedora Mentors program is here to help you go the rest of the way!  For
starters, visit our HelpWanted[1] page to get some ideas as to how you
can help us.  Once you know what you want to do, you can visit the
Fedora Mentors home[2] to learn how you can get guidance for every step
of you journey with Fedora.  Complete this challenge and be part of
something grand!

Fedora Contributors:
Thanks for helping us out.  We're glad to have every contributor as part
of the team.  That said, we can never have enough people helping to
drive Fedora forward.  That is why our challenge for you is to select
someone and help them join the Fedora Project as a contributor.  It
doesn't matter who you select; it can be someone in one of Fedora's
end-user channels, a friend, family member, or someone in your community
who is curious about open source and Fedora.  All you have to do is help
them to see just how they can make a difference in our project.  Help to
guide them in selecting a Fedora project to work with.  Help them
establish first contact, and help them through their first tasks to
become a contributor.  You've been through this process yourself, so you
shouldn't have any trouble guiding them in getting started.  If you need
any help, we're here to back you up!  Stop on by the Fedora Mentors
home[2] for information on how we can help you or your new contributor
with whatever questions you might have.  If this seems like a program
you think you can help out with, join us!  We would be happy to welcome
new Fedora Mentors, and you can easily be a mentor without it
interfering with your other Fedora contributions.  It's easy work! 
Complete this challenge and you can be truly proud of your
accomplishments with the Fedora Project!
