Re: Outreachy openshift-ansible vagrant project

Hey Anna!

That's great that you'd like to contribute! I've never worked on this project myself (so I don't know anything), but I suggest taking a look at the documents linked under the "Contributing" section of the openshift-ansible README: https://github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible#contributing and running a Vagrant build as a start: https://github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible/blob/master/README_vagrant.md

For the contributing docs, I'd suggest starting with the Core Concepts doc, then the Best Practices and/or Code Style guides. Luckily it's a pretty brief guide.

This will let you get your feet wet, and give some time for our resident OpenShift/Ansible expert (Jason, on cc) to give you some more specific guidance. I also suggest reading through Jason's previous answer on the list, here: http://lists.openshift.redhat.com/openshift-archives/dev/2016-March/msg00047.html (though I'm not sure how relevant it is to your goals personally.) I also recommend joining the IRC channel (Freenode #openshift-outreachy) during business hours in US Eastern time.

If you somehow finish looking through all those things before Jason chimes in, then maybe getting a handle on Vagrant would be a good next step - this was the first hit for "Vagrant introduction": http://blog.scottlowe.org/2014/09/12/a-quick-introduction-to-vagrant/

We're excited to have you here. Welcome!

I will be applying for Outreachy Round 12.  I am interested in Project 1: Vagrantfile improvements for openshift-ansible.  Python is my primary language and I have used Vagrant for one project.  I have been programming in Python for the past 4 years, though I'm a beginner with Vagrant.

I would like to make a contribution for my application.  Can you provide some guidance on how to get started with this project?
