**  
+
** 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.

** I also generally favor policies that allow quick bug->fix turnaround time and allow more enhancements into released versions of Fedora.

* Question1?
=== Introduction ===
+
** Answer1
 
+
* '''Mission Statement:'''
+
** I'll continue to work to maintain a high level of technical feasibility and avoid micromanagement in decisions made by FESCo. I'll try to ensure that our processes for developers are as simple as possible, and to avoid processes that result in unnecessary work, or in duplication of effort, as we form new rules for change management in Fedora.  As I've shown in the past, I'll continue to try to guide our policy decisions to put the power and responsibility in developers hands rather than requiring FESCo's or other committee's intervention and participation at every level.
+
 
+
* '''Past Work Summary:'''
+
** I've worked on Linux for Red Hat since 1998 in various roles including technical support and engineering. I'm one of the anaconda maintainers as well as the maintainer of (thankfully now deprecated) mkinitrd, and am or have been maintainer of Fedora's packages for booty, cdparanoia, dumpet, gnu-efi, grub, grub2, grubby, python-pyblock, syslinux, and others.  I've worked on many levels of our software stack, including implementing installation and boot support for iSCSI, UEFI, dmraid, from the kernel all the way up through userspace. I also represent Red Hat and Fedora on the UEFI Specification Working Group. I'm currently a member of FESCo seeking re-election, and have been serving in this capacity since the winter election of 2009.
+
 
+
* '''Future Plans:'''
+
** I'm currently focused on implementing and impoving UEFI support throughout Fedora.  As a FESCo member I'll continue to help ensure that developers have what they need to implement their features and bug fixes with as little hindrance as possible, and at the same time avoid unnecessary and wasted effort, especially as we revamp the Feature process.

* '''Mission Statement:'''
+
 
+
Keeping Fedora as an usable and good quality operating system for running server and desktop applications.
+
 
+
* '''Past work summary:'''
+
 
+
I've been Red Hat employee and Fedora contributor for more than eight years working on packages related to security (PAM, OpenSSL, libgcrypt, GNUTLS, ...) in both Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. I am one of the upstream maintainers of PAM. I was FESCo member for the past two years.
+
 
+
* '''Future plans:'''
+
 
+
Apart from trying to adhere in my FESCo work to the mission statement above I'd like to help with implementation of the
+
new change process and the Fedora revamp proposal. I'd also like to bring at least slightly more democracy into the FPC membership process.
+
 
+
== [[User:mattdm|Matthew Miller]] (mattdm) ==
+
 
+
=== Introduction ===
+
 
+
* '''Mission Statement:'''
+
** To see the Fedora distribution become more widely used as a platform, with modular layers of enabling technology all within the wider circle of the Fedora community.
+
 
+
* '''Past work summary:'''
+
** I've worked with Fedora since the beginning, as a community member and in my various roles as sysadmin and systems architect at Boston University and Harvard. (At BU, I helped host the very first FUDCons.) I've maintained a number of small packages for a long time. I was hired by Red Hat last year to work on Fedora Cloud, and have been working with others in the Cloud SIG to add polish to our Cloud images. I'm also on the Minimal Core SIG, which I care about both for the cloud images and because changes there ripple out and affect everyone. I'm often active on the mailing lists, and while I sometimes have strong opinions, I know I'm not always right and therefore try very hard to listen to all the different viewpoints.
+
 
+
* '''Future plans:'''
+
** I have a somewhat active vision for a Fedora project, centered around a base platform and with greater latitude for SIGs to solve problems within their areas. I'd like to see a more carefully managed (but not stagnant!) core OS, while allowing other layers to be less perfect when perfection is getting in their way — yet still hold those layers to standards agreed on by the Fedora community. Without both of these things, we risk becoming irrelevant: either beautiful but rarely used, or completely marginalized as we're passed by. Fedora is the best enthusiast distribution, and it can ''also'' be the best platform for development, the best cloud environment, and the base for a polished end-user experience.
