I'm joining Red Hat as the new Fedora Project Leader starting Monday, July 12. You'll find more information here shortly about me and my work in the Fedora Project.

My name is Jared Smith. I'm a big Linux geek. I enjoy systems administration, relational databases, web programming, and VoIP. I eat too many donuts, and don't blog as regularly as I should. I've managed small systems and large-scale networks (over 6500 servers and 800 network devices). As a college freshman, I once stuffed 26 jumbo marshmallows in my mouth to win a contest. Oh, and I wrote a book for O'Reilly on Asterisk and the future of telephony.

Goals

As the Fedora Project Leader

  • Oversee the entire Fedora Project -- if it's in Fedora, ultimately I'm accountable for it.
  • Act as a catalyst within the community to improve communications and encourage excellent behavior
  • Work with the Fedora Program Manager John Poelstra, Fedora Engineering Manager Tom "Spot" Callaway, and the Community Architecture team to make sure that Fedora is making constant, substantial progress in its mission to advance free and open source software.
  • Chair the Fedora Project Board, and ensure that the Board is effectively advising and guiding the Fedora Project where needed.
  • Be an effective bridge between the external volunteer contributor base and the contributor community inside Red Hat, such as RHEL engineers.
  • Lower contributor barriers to the absolute minimum, and encourage others to get involved in FOSS through Fedora.

As a Contributor

  • Provide top-tier quality documentation for Fedora products and services.
