* '''Mission Statement:'''

** I like Fedora.  I would like to ensure our 3 main products remain competitive and gain users and new contributors through that.
  
* '''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.
+
* '''Past work summary:'''
* '''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.
+
** Contributor to Fedora since 2009, provenpackager, packager sponsor.
* '''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.
+
** Workstation WG member, have been dealing with a lot of Workstation-related package builds over past 2 years.

** Upstream GNOME contributor, mostly working on GNOME Software these days.

* '''Future plans:'''
 +
** Ensure Workstation releases are polished and work well enough for the casual user.
 +
** Increase Rawhide usability so that we could hopefully get more and more Fedora developers running that.
 +
** I will personally focus most on Workstation and 3 main products, but I also want to ensure KDE remains a release blocking spin and that other interested parties can continue producing alternative spins.

+
== [[User:lnykryn|Lukáš Nykrýn]] (lnykryn)==
* '''Past work summary:''' I'm a former Red Hat employee keen on continuing to contribute to Fedora. I've worked on various power management and ACPI features, and have been leading the Secure Boot implementation that's been adopted by most significant Linux distributions. I've recently been spending time on helping with the remaining Anaconda and upgrade issues for Fedora 18.
+
* '''Future plans:''' FESCo exists to enable Fedora contributors to get their work done, providing that that work doesn't adversely affect other contributions  or the goals of the distribution. That isn't how it's always been treated recently. I want to focus on returning FESCo to being an enabling group, while simultaneously engaging the community in discussions to fix the various infrastructural and policy flaws that stand in the way of developers.

=== Introduction ===
 
=== Introduction ===
  
* '''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.
+
* '''Mission Statement:'''
* '''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. 
+
** Ensure that Fedora is the cutting-edge distribution.
* '''Future plans:''' Fedora is often the place where packages affected by changes other packages first interact, and handling this well is critical for fulfilling the above-mentioned primary purpose of a distribution.  To that end, I plan to work on improving the Feature process, and otherwise improving 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.  Outside of FESCo my interest is in improving security of Fedora.

* '''Mission Statement:''' To refine existing FESCo procedures in light of problems we've encountered.
 
* '''Past work summary:''' I've contributed to Fedora since the fedora.us days and was a member of FESCo during the merge of Core and Extras.  Recently I've been an active member of the Fedora Infrastructure Team working on FAS, PackageDB, and general scripting and bugfixing, worked on Packaging Guidelines as a member of the Fedora Packaging Committee, and have just returned from a stint on the Board.  Around alpha release, I can often be seen to step in to get python packages building or work on bugs that have hit the community's radar but aren't important enough to hit a blocker list.
 
* '''Future plans:''' Past FESCo's have streamlined many policies including the updates policy, a fast track for nonresponsive maintainers, and how FPC guidelines are approved.  The current and next FESCo are likely going to be tackling an update of the Feature Process.  There's been a lot of work around this already.  Many packagers have contributed to the [[Fixing_features]] wiki page. FESCo has been discussing issues on the [https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/896| Refining Features] ticket.  I'd like to help organize the identified problems and suggested solutions and incrementally improve pieces of the policy.  If we finish that work, it may be time to take another look at improving the non-responsive maintainer policy.

I'd like to work in FESCo on review of new features and help to communicate between group of developers so the lack of communication does not bring surprises late in the development cycle of release.

* '''Past work summary:''' I have been a linux user since 1999, starting with Red Hat 7.1 and moving through different distributions including Linux From Scratch to the current Fedora 17. I also co-started a local annual linux conference for beginners and intermediate users in 2006 and have led the organization team for the last 5 years. Since 2007 I have also worked for Red Hat in Brno, mostly focusing on the anaconda internals, text mode and driver loading subsystems.

* '''Future plans:''' We have some places in the distribution which affect very large number of other packages and environments. Some of those were even adopted by other distributions and people are working on making the learning curve for converts smooth. Unfortunately, sometimes we forget the motto of one tool doing one thing, but doing it properly. When that happens, we loose the ability to replace packages easily, integrate them in different environments and also to test them in isolation. But all those points are important from the engineering and QA point of view and make it easier for other desktop environments and distributions to integrate the tools. So I would like to help tweak the Feature process to take this into account and work with the community to make sure Fedora parts are more easily reusable by others.
