Re: love to contribute!

Hi Armin!

I work on the CLI team.

Usually people just attack what matters to them and then make PR's. You can
see that we've handled a lot of PR's from non team members. One of the
benefits of this, is that the user tackes something that, even if we cannot
merge it, has value to them.

However if someone is interested in tackling something which meets our
short term goals, off of our backlog of work, we need to think about how to
co-ordinate that.

You can imagine some issues with this:
* What if the person changes their mind, for any reason, at any point
* What if the person produces something we were also working on.

I'll bring this up at our daily standup tomorrow and see if we can provide
you with some guidance on what to look into.

Thanks so much for your interest.

Kind Regards,
Rasheed.

armin,

thanks for indicating an interest! hopefully you have a CLA on-file. you
can see some of the contribution first steps here, including the CLA to
fill out if you still need to do that step [1].

do you have a particular area of interest in the project? e.g. the cli,
the api, services on the platform, documentation? we can check with the
teams in the area you're the most interested in.

there is also a doc-sprint coming up [2] that may be fun to participate
in, even if you aren't able to join in-person there are probably areas of
the documentation that can be improved from a remote location. stormy
peters is the contact for that.
