Hello All,

So as I had announced previously Asst. Professor Becka Morgan at Western
Oregon University will be holding a new class in the Winter Term focusing
on contributing to Ubuntu. As such she reached out to Ubuntu Oregon LoCo
seeking mentors for her students to help guide them in contributing and
learning the in's and out's of contributing to a Free Open Source Software

I'm hoping to find a few more mentors 5-10 would be nice that way we have
enough to cover her students. Mentoring will be done virtually via E-mail,
Skype, Google Hangout, Google Docs, Etc. The focus will be showing and
mentoring the students on how to contribute to Ubuntu via Documentation,
Bug Triage and Support. Additionally it would be helpful to give a good
understanding on other areas where a individual can contribute. I
understand our skills all vary as such if you can help in even one area
your contribution to advocating for Ubuntu through a mentorship will be
really valuable.

If you are interested in contributing to this excellent project please fill
out this Google Docs Form:

I will be in touch with those who complete the form as we get closer to the
Winter Term in January.
