I work for [http://redhat.com/ Red Hat] as an engineering manager.  I joined the company in February 2008 and until July 2010, I served as the [[Project Leader|Fedora Project Leader]] and chairman of the [[Board| Fedora Project Board]].  Nowadays in what little spare time I have, I dabble in the following bits:
 
* Help with the [[Insight]] project
 
* Merciless and sometimes foolhardy [[wiki gardening]]
 
* Give bits of advice and help to the [[FPL]] as a member of the "ex-FPL club"
 
* Work on my own [http://pulsecaster.org PulseCaster] project (it's [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/applications/Pulsecaster available in Fedora] of course!)
 
* Maintain Fedora [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/users/packages/pfrields?acls=commit packages]

Nowadays in what little spare time I have, I dabble in the following Fedora bits:
 
+
* Editing and sometimes writing for the [[Magazine]] ([https://fedoramagazine.org direct link])
* [[/Drafts| Drafts and Downloads]]
+
* Give bits of advice and help to the [[FPL]] as a member of the "ex-FPL club"
 
+
* Work on my own [http://pulsecaster.org PulseCaster] project (it's [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/pulsecaster available in Fedora] of course!)
These documents appear on the [http://docs.fedoraproject.org/ Fedora documentation] Web site and in [http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/docs.shtml 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

== Package Maintenance ==

I maintain or co-maintain the following packages in [[PackageMaintainers| the Fedora package collection]]: [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/users/packages/pfrields Package listing]

I no longer maintain the following packages:
