+    <h1 id="level-1-volunteers">Level 1 Volunteers</h1>
+<p>As a volunteer at Level 1 you will gain basic familiarity with the Apache Software
Foundation and how it works, 
+get signed up for various important online project services, and introduce yourself to the
other volunteers on 
+the project's mailing mailing list.</p>
+<p>Level 1 is focused on connecting you to the project.</p>
+<h2 id="steps-to-complete-level-1">Steps to Complete Level 1</h2>
+<p>It is important that you understand a little about the Apache Software Foundation
and OpenOffice, 
+what it is, how it is organized and how the Apache OpenOffice Project fits into the overall
Foundation.  This is partially 
+organizational knowledge and a little history.  But it is important for understanding how
things work here, 
+and understanding the culture of this open source community.  Suggested readings are:</p>
+<li><a href="">How It Works</a>
(to learn about how the ASF is organized and works)</li>
+<li><a href="">ASF FAQ's</a> (browse
to see if it answers any questions you might have)</li>
+<li><a href="">OpenOffice Wikipedia article</a>
(for basic historical background)</li>
+<li><a href="">14 Ways
to Contribute to Open Source without Being a Programming Genius or a Rock Star</a></li>
+<p>As a globally-distributed all-volunteer open source project, there is never a time
or place where we can
+all meet together in the same room or even on a telephone call.  Because of this, and out
of respect for 
+everyone's busy and varying schedule, we use mailing lists to coordinate our work, make proposals,
+consensus and resolve community issues.  There are three mailing lists that every Volunteer
should be on:</p>
+<li><a href="">ooo-dev</a>
 This is the 
+main mailing list for the project, and gets a lot of traffic.  But this is where project-wide
discussions occur.</li>
+<li><a href="">ooo-announce</a>
+is the official announcement list for the project.  It is used for announcing things like
new releases, 
+security patches, conferences, etc.</li>
+<li><a href="">ooo-users</a>
This is our users
+list and is one way in which we provide support to end users.  Although you may not be interested
+in user support, it is still recommended that you follow this list, even if just to get a
feel for
+user concerns, problems, feature ideas, etc.</li>
+<p>You can also review other mailing lists we host and which may be of interest, including
ones focused on 
+specific <a href="">project
functions</a> and 
+<a href="">native languages</a>.</p>
+<p>One of the first practical tests each Volunteer faces is dealing with the volume
of emails that comes from 
+participation in an open source project like this.  A good email client for this kind of
work will support 
+folders, rule-based folder assignments, and most importantly quote collapsing.  A common
practice is to make
+a separate folder for each Apache mailing list and define a rule to move incoming emails
directly into that folder. 
+If you have a question on how to configure your email client to do these things, try your
help files, 
+or a web search first, and if that fails post a question to the ooo-dev list.</p>
+<p>Because our mailing lists can be busy, and we're not all native English speakers,
and because email text is 
+a crude medium which makes it hard to express nuanced emotions, we need to be careful and
tolerant in how we 
+use it.  Please read over our <a href="">Participation
+and <a href="">List Conduct
Guidelines</a> for more information.</p>
+<p>Now that you have signed up for the mailing lists, you should send a note to ooo-dev
list and introduce 
+yourself to the other Volunteers.  Who are you, where are you from, what are you interested
in?  These are all
+good things to cover.</p>
+<p>Aside from the mailing lists there are several online services that every volunteer
should be signed up for:</p>
+<li>Our <a href="">MediaWiki</a>
(sometimes called MWiki) used for user documentation and many other things.</li>
+<li>Our <a href="">ConfluenceWiki</a>
(sometimes called CWiki) where we do project planning.</li>
+<li>Our <a href="">Bugzilla database</a> (sometimes called BZ) where we
report and track status on bugs.</li>
+<li>Our <a href="">Community Forums</a> These
are available in several languages.
+This is the primary way in which we engage with the user community.</li>
+<p>Finally, once you have done the above, Edit this wiki page <em>TBD</em>
containing project volunteers. Add your name
+and indicate that you have completed Level 1.  Congratulations!  Please send a note to the
ooo-dev list so we know
+you are ready for the next Level.</p>
