Volunteer Webmaster Quiz

Want to get involved with www.gnu.org? If you're enthusiastic, and know HTML and a little bit about our work, we'd love to hear from you! As a volunteer GNU webmaster, you'll be doing great work to help support our mission. You can usefully help with webmastering in as little as an hour a week, or as much time as you have.

To see what our typical tasks look like, please check our Webmastering Guidelines. You may be disappointed to find out that these tasks don't call for the elaborate webmastering techniques that are standard nowadays, but on the other hand they are very diverse, and often will require quite a bit of inventiveness on your part. Moreover, they will give you experience in dealing with people and complex organizations, a skill that may be applied to many other areas of life.

If you feel comfortable with our routine tasks, please answer the following questions in English as best as you can, and email them to <webmasters@gnu.org>. (If you don't feel like becoming a GNU webmaster after all, there are other ways you can help the GNU Project.)

  1. In your own words, what is the Free Software Foundation, and what is its purpose?
  2. What is open source?
  3. What is free software?
  4. Do you have any experience with graphic design?
  5. Do you have any experience with CVS, Subversion or other version control systems?

Ready? Email your completed quiz to <webmasters@gnu.org>.
