We're Looking For LQ ISO Maintainers


Do you enjoy keeping up with the latest Linux distributions? Would you like to help LinuxQuestions.org? We're looking for a few members interested in helping to maintain LQ ISO ( http://iso.linuxquestions.org ). Your main task would be adding new distribution versions and mirrors to the site, but we have some additional functionality coming along soon. If you're interested in helping, please let us know in this thread. I'd also like to take time to thank Bill who has been helping maintain LQ ISO for many years and has done an absolutely great job at doing so. Thanks for the dedication Bill.

UPDATE: Please see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post5264412 for additional information. If you have any specific questions, feel free to post them.

I think I have the necessary time and materials to help with the work. Count me in, and let me know if there are requirements beyond a dedicated broadband connection, and a few computers running Linux, (Fedora 20), Win7 Home Premium and Win7 Professional. One DVD burner, no massive storage on-site, but something tells me you don't need all that anyway...

Dear Jeremy,
I would like to help, I am not sure where I would be useful. I like trying out new versions and hearing other people's opinions of them. I have recently changed from Ubuntu to Mint. Yours rpalmer
