You can find my official bio here. I work for Red Hat as the manager of the Fedora Engineering team. I joined the company in February 2008 and until July 2010, I served as the Fedora Project Leader and chairman of the Fedora Project Board. Nowadays in what little spare time I have, I dabble in the following Fedora bits:

I participate in the Fredericksburg (VA) Linux Users Group (FredLUG), which meets twice monthly in my hometown.

I was a founding member of the Fedora Project Board as a volunteer contributor, and served the community there from April 2006 to July 2007. I've been involved in the Fedora Project since 2003.

Contents

[edit] Active Documents

These documents appear on the Fedora documentation Web site and in Docs CVS. These docs now have fantastic maintainers, but there may be bits of my old work floating around in them:

In the past, I've also worked on these (now obsolete) documents:

  • Installation Guides for FC4, FC5
  • SELinux FAQ for FC5
  • Yum Software Management for FC3, FC4

[edit] Package Maintenance

I maintain or co-maintain the following packages in the Fedora package collection: Package listing

I no longer maintain the following packages:

[edit] Obsolete Documents

These are deprecated because of changes over time to Fedora. Currently these still appear in CVS, but may eventually become wistful memories.

[edit] Self Introduction

Name: Paul W. Frields
Location: Fredericksburg, VA - USA
Profession: Engineering Project Manager
Company: Red Hat, Inc.

[edit] Goals

[edit] As a Contributor

  • Provide the odd low-maintenance package such as non-critical add-ons, where my programming skill (or lack thereof) is not a limiting factor.
  • Approach issues from the perspective of a general productivity computer user so that Fedora maintains a welcoming environment for everyone.
  • Be an example for others in dealing with other people in a constructive, friendly way at all times.

[edit] Skill Areas

HIGH: bash, GNU make, DocBook XML, RHCE (RHL 7.1, RHEL 3 & 5), communication skills (writing, teaching, public speaking)

MEDIUM/LOW: XML/XSL/XSLT, Python, C/C++, GTK/GObject
