Zach Oglesby is a Avionics Technician in the US Air Force, he spends his time between Delaware, USA and Rota, Spain. He has been using GNU/Linux since 2001, and wishes to see it used more in learning environment. While he can program in a few languages, Zach is more into the social importance of free software, as such he only writes code when its necessary. An example of this is his applet for using bluetooth headsets in gnome, and can be found here.


I started with Fedora as a docs guy and that is were I will most likely devote the majority of my time. I am responsible for the Multimedia Beat, and bugs that you file against Readme Burning Iso get sent to me. You can almost always find me in #fedora-docs if you have docs questions for me.


I just recently started to package to help with the Haskell SIG, I have a few packages in review, and I am currently the owner of the following:



Haskell SIG

I use Xmonad and Haskell every day, so when I noticed that Fedora needed help in this area I started to help out. I am currently packaging haskell libraries, and in the long term I would like to work more on the Haskell Spin, and maybe even a Xmonad (without Gnome) spin.
