* '''Future plans:'''
** 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.
+
** Ensure Workstation releases are polished and work well enough for the casual user.
** More QA automation - supporting the current tool work, make it more integrated into the packaging process and increasing testing coverage.
+
** Increase Rawhide usability so that we could hopefully get more and more Fedora developers running that.
** 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 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.
** 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.
