** With the introduction of Fedora products, make sure that they make consistent technology choices to avoid splintering the Fedora universe into incompatible subgroups and wasting effort on reimplementations.

** More QA automation - supporting the current tool work, make it more integrated into the packaging process and increasing testing coverage.

** Fedora is often the place where packages affected by changes other packages first interact, and handling this well is critical for achieving good user experience. To that end, I want to improve the handling of changes that affect other packages and ensuring distribution-wide consistency - while making it possible to make successful transitions faster, not slowing change down in bureaucracy.

* '''Mission Statement:''' Fedora is undergoing a transition from being simply a single Linux Distribution into a project that will create several overlapping distributions and various other platforms and technologies.  I'd like the opportunity to help guide Fedora through the transition so that we can both create these new products and not abandon the good parts of the model that people have come to expect.

* '''Mission Statement:''' To further the goals of the project and Free Software in general by helping enable contributors to bring the highest quality and most diverse collection of software to the distribution.  I'm fully committed to the goals of Free Software, for ideological, but also primarily technical reasons.

* '''Mission Statement:''' Ensure Fedora remains on the cutting edge of open source software, while providing a consistent and coherent experience to users.
* '''Past work summary:''' I've been a Fedora user since RHL 7.1, and an active packager since 2007, as well as a sponsor and member of FESCO and the FPC.  I initially focused on games and php applications, but have expanded to other things over time. I also encounter and deal with many of the issues we encounter as a project in the course of my day job.
+
* '''Past work summary:''' Red Hat employee since 2007, Linux kernel developer, toolchain tinkerer, general OS bug fixer. Previously a Debian developer and Canonical/Ubuntu developer.
* '''Future plans:''' Ideally, I'd like to find ways to encourage and educate new contributors.  I've sponsored a few new packagers, but would like to help shorten the time from first interest to active packager, and can only do so much on my own.  I also have ideas and opinions on many areas FESCO addresses, including the Feature process, and would like to continue to contribute what experience I have to those conversations.  I'm also very much interested in helping ARM achieve Primary architecture status, and have been doing a bit of work towards that goal.
+
* '''Future plans:''' Bring my experience to bear in guiding Fedora for the next few years as we transition from a mere collection of packages grouped together with little integration into a series of targeted products.

* '''Mission Statement:''' Make Fedora work better for its primary purpose as a distribution - to turn various differing upstreams into a consistent and well-integrated whole.

* '''Past work summary:''' Contributor since RHL times, worked on many things including a tcsh internals rewrite, initscripts, pyrpm, switch from MD5 to SHA-256 hashes in RPM and other places, audit work from the kernel to GUI layers, volume_key, encrypted disk support in libvirt, kernel's crypto interface, and the Fedora signing server. Used to be a heavy-duty translator into Czech.
