This is the nomination page for Fedora Board elections.
In November / December 2009 there are two seats up for election. The seats open are currently held by Matt Domsch and Bill Nottingham.
Matt Domsch (mdomsch)
- Goal statement: Fedora defines and exhibits the best in Free and Open Source software development and release practices, government, and inclusion, and serves as a role model for other communities.
- Past work summary: Member of the Board since its inception in April 2006. Election Coordinator for Winter 2008 and Summer 2009 elections. Member of Fedora Infrastructure. Fedora Mirror Wrangler and author of MirrorManager. Fedora packaging sponsor, maintaining 25+ packages. Monthly I rebuild the entire rawhide tree to catch Fails to Build From Source failures. I have been actively involved in the development of Red Hat Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Fedora since 1999.
- Future plans: Encourage more ways for our millions of users to become active contributors and evangelists.
- Anything else you want to add: I'm a Technology Strategist in Dell's Office of the CTO, with an affinity for Linux and Virtualization. I speak only for myself, not my employer, unless otherwise noted. But if you like Dell gear, I'll take credit too. :-)
Chris Tyler (ctyler)
- Goal statement: Fedora exemplifies open source community and collaboration. I want to see Fedora continue to thrive, to lead the way in technical and community innovation, and to grow in both the number of participants and the strength of our product.
- Past work summary: Member of Fedora board, F10-F11. Worked to help organize FUDCon Toronto 2009 and Toronto-area release events. Maintain a small number of packages and teach others how to package. One of the list admins for the fedora-list. Involved with Fedora and Red Hat Linux in multiple ways since 1996.
- Future plans: We've done a great job making it easy to get involved in Fedora. I plan to encourage the development of even wider and smoother on-ramps for new participants as well as closer relationships with upstream projects.
- Anything else you want to add: I'm a professor at Seneca College, working to directly involve students in the Fedora community, and one of the people behind TeachingOpenSource.org. Author of Fedora Linux and X Power Tools (O'Reilly) and irregular author of Fedora Daily Package. Teacher in the inaugral POSSE program. Organizer of the Free Software and Open Source Symposium 2007-2009 and the first Toronto Open Source Week. Open source had been my focus for over 15 years, and Fedora is my open source neighborhood.
