Ikey Doherty (founder of Solus Linux) is up to open source gaming!
The entitled "Linux Badass" appears to have launched an open-source focused gaming / software development company.
After Solus he went on to work on Intel's Clear Linux project & now a new firm: "Lispy Snake" works on game engines and indeed games. Given the Irishman's experience, this firm will leverage open-source technologies.
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.
