** 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.

** I've worked on Linux for Red Hat since 1998 in various roles including technical support and engineering.

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.

** 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.
