    have you got some free time and do you want to get involved in oVirt project?

Do you like the idea of having fresh disk images of recent distribution in oVirt Gluster repository?
You can help us by testing existing online images (like https://getfedora.org/en/cloud/download/) ensuring they works with cloud-init
or creating one yourself and report your success to devel at ovirt.org.
We'll be happy to upload the images once these are ready.

Do you like Debian and do you have some programming skill?
Help us getting VDSM running on it! Debian Jessie has been released a couple of weeks ago and it's a good time for giving it a try.
You can follow the progress here: http://www.ovirt.org/VDSM_on_Debian

Here are some bugs you can hopefully fix in less that one day or you can just try to reproduce providing info:

Then oVirt infra team is looking for you!, join the infra team and dive in to do the newest and coolest devops tools today!
Here are some of our open tasks you can help with: https://fedorahosted.org/ovirt/report/1

Don't miss next week oVirt infra hackathon[8]!

You don't have programming skills, not enough time for DevOps but you want still to contribute?
Here are some bugs you can take care of, also without writing a line of code:

Do you prefer to test things? We have some test cases[5] you can try using nightly snapshots[6]

Do you want to contribute test cases? Most of the features[7] included in oVirt are missing a test case, you're welcome to contribute one!

Is this the first time you try to contribute to oVirt project?
You can start from here [1][2]!

You don't know gerrit very well? You can find some more docs here [3].

Any other question about development? Feel free to ask on devel at ovirt.org or on irc channel[4].

Let us know you're getting involved, present yourself and tell us what you're going to do, you'll be welcome!
