Hello Ivan :)
My name is Ali/amjjawad and we have had a chat on Ubuntu GNOME Facebook
Page ;) yep, that was me :P

I guess you have made your first step already ;)

That is really good to know and guess what? you have indeed made the right
choice and you will never regret it :D

So great to know that. Looks like we will have someone so eager to learn
and go the extra miles ;)

Right, I forgot you told me that you can't test now but later. And, you are
ready for Doc and Wiki Stuff and/or Translation :D
Okay, I am doing some final touches here and there and there is something
you will sure like but you need to wait a little bit ;)

Ah, we are doing this for free because we do love what we do and we are all
volunteers :D NONE is getting paid here as far as I know ;)

Yes, you are more than welcome and you are now a member of this family :)

Yes, please!

I've been there. I've got the scar :D
Launchpad and signing the CoC for the first time is pain in the neck. But,
trust me, later, you will guide someone new to that process :)
The good news is: you need to sign that ONCE so you may need to have some
headache for a short while but then, you are headache free.

> Do I have to do every step from this help page?

If you are stuck somewhere or to put that right, I do recommend to read
that page because usually, any Wiki Page has been found to help everyone at
something specific so I suggest to read it :)

Thank you for choosing and joining Ubuntu GNOME and I'm glad to have you
