Hi all,

Thanks for the introduction, Cameron.

This is all pretty new for me but I'm excited to dive in.

I applied for my wiki access, so I'll add my name to that page when I can.

> Hi folks,
> I'd like to introduce you to Felicity Brand, a technical writer who
> lives in Melbourne, Australia. She is interested in participating in
> SeasonOfDocs and learning about Open Source practices. She expects to
> have some spare time to get involved as a volunteer, but not enough to
> take on the leading role we are looking for in the paid writer. (She is
> also juggling being a mother and contracting on the side.)
> I've suggested she might want to look at reviewing all our OSGeoLive
> Quickstarts (and maybe Project Overviews) from a tech writer's
> perspective, with eye to bring a greater level of maturity and
> consistency between these Quickstarts, and maybe improve the templates
> we are using along the way. This could be a stepping stone into helping
> mentor techies from each project to keep their Quickstarts up to date,
> and helping techies write new Quickstarts.
