Working Group Self-Nominations

To volunteer to serve on one of the new Fedora working groups, simply add yourself to the appropriate section below, along with a brief description of your current involvement with Fedora and plans for participation in this group.


Fedora Workstation Working Group

  • Matthias Clasen - Desktop team lead, Provenpackager, GNOME release team. I want to act as liaison with GNOME and ensure that we come up with plan that is credible, effective and achievable, working together with various upstreams.
  • Elad Alfassa - Fedora packager, sometimes designer, fixes trivial bugs and packages GNOME stuff. I want to help however I can to make Fedora Workstation/Desktop as awesome as possible.
  • Owen Taylor - Red Hat Desktop/Interactive Experience Architect, long-time GNOME contributor. I want to make sure that Fedora Workstation product is solid from the ground up, has a clear design target that is compelling to a wide range of Fedora users, and will meet the needs of downstream distributions like RHEL as well.
  • Adel Gadllah - Upstream GNOME contributor and Fedora (proven)packer - Ensure that the workstation product provides a well designed, modern experience that is usable for both content consumers as well as content creators.
  • Kalev Lember - Fedora GNOME packaging, provenpackager, packager sponsor -- I would like to participate in the initial working group to make sure we get a competitive product -- released on a predictable 6 month schedule, usable for both home users and developers
  • Christian Schaller - Manager for the Red Hat desktop team, Fedora packager. I want to make sure the resources of the Red Hat team are fully behind this effort and that it becomes a great solution for both the Fedora community and Red Hat.
  • Lukáš Tinkl - Longtime core KDE developer, SW engineer in the KDE Desktop Team in Red Hat, Fedora packager, member of the KDE SIG group. With the background of 7 years in SUSE and now almost 6 years in Red Hat, I want to continue the effort to make Fedora a first class, compelling experience for KDE users and developers.
  • Nils Philippsen - Software engineer in the Red Hat Developer Experience team. Fedora package maintainer and upstream contributor of GIMP, scanning (SANE) and related packages. Proven packager, sponsor. I like sensible defaults with the option to adapt them to one's own workflow where they don't fit.

Fedora Server Working Group

  • Stephen Gallagher - Red Hat Server Experience Architect, former SSSD lead developer and FreeIPA team member. I will be attempting to represent the future needs of Red Hat customers with Fedora Server. I will also be working closely with several "manageability" initiatives do make run-time (re)configuration simpler.
  • Phil Knirsch - Red Hat Developer Experience Manager, including KDE, PPC64 and S390X Secondary Archs as well as Power Management userland. Former engineer himself and working with Linux for over 20 years and for 13 years for Red Hat. My goal for my work in the Fedora Server Working Group is to ensure that Fedora Server will provide an excellent OS for professional use of Fedora in the server environment. Part of that is to make it lean, quick, and working on all architectures.
  • Ondrej Vasik - Red Hat Developer Experience Manager, in my team basic CLI tools, archivers, network daemons, databases. Still working on some CLI tools, owning some of the base packages on the system. My goal is to make sure that Fedora will be modern Linux system, but with backward compatibility and stability in the core system - which is crucial for the server usecase.
  • Nils Philippsen - Software engineer in the Red Hat Developer Experience team. Maintainer and upstream contributor for a variety of packages. Proven packager, sponsor. I've run servers on Fedora for years despite counsel to the contrary. It's worked well so far and I don't see why this should change. I've been the on-site engineer for Red Hat at the SAP LinuxLab, so I like to think I know a thing or two about server needs in an enterprise environment.
  • Tomáš Mráz - Software engineer in the Red Hat Server Experience team. Maintainer of several security related packages.

Fedora Cloud Working Group

  • Robyn Bergeron - FPL, former Cloud SIG wrangler, #momops expert. My goal in the group is to help where I can (even if it's just organizationally) and through sharing insights from others. I happen to think that Fedora can be a fantastic OS for cloud usage, particularly for those consumers who value MTTR over MTTF. Our quick uptake of new technology can be advantageous in these types of deployments, where the perceived "risks" of the bleeding-edge are often mitigated via automation and monitoring, and fast boots and reboots and improved OS internals provide benefits in recovery that outweigh the risks.


Base Design Working Group

  • Dennis Gilmore - Fedora Release Engineer, Packager, Secondary Arch Lead. I want to make sure we can deliver everything and enable everything to work
  • Phil Knirsch - Red Hat Developer Experience Manager, including KDE, PPC64 and S390X Secondary Archs as well as Power Management userland. Former engineer himself and working with Linux for over 20 years and for 13 years for Red Hat. In the Base Design Working Group i'd like to help make sure the Heart of Fedora (<3!!!) will be a great starting point for any product on top of that, be it Workstation, Server, Cloud or any other type.
  • Marcela Mašláňová - FESCo member, team lead of people working on various languages and Software Collections
  • Harald Hoyer - Technical team lead of the Red Hat Plumbers Team, including systemd, dracut, initscripts, util-linux.
  • Lennart Poettering - RH Plumbers Team, systemd hacker.
  • Ondrej Vasik - Red Hat Developer Experience Manager, in my team basic CLI tools, archivers, network daemons, databases. Still working on some CLI tools, owning some of the base packages on the system. My goal is to make sure that Fedora will be modern Linux system suitable for programmers desktop and cloud usage, but with backward compatibility and stability in the core system.
  • Jaroslav Reznik - Fedora Program Manager. Work on scheduling/planning, groups coordination, change management.
  • Nils Philippsen - Software engineer in the Red Hat Developer Experience team. Maintainer and upstream contributor for a variety of packages. Proven packager, sponsor. I use Fedora for a wide variety of tasks (software development, visual and audio content creation, as a server, ...) and I want to ensure that the base is in good shape that all these use cases can be built on top well.
