  • Future plans: Create and manage a variety of virtualized systems as well as develop SELinux-based systems.

Christoph Wickert (cwickert)

  • Mission Statement: Lets get back to the good ol' days, where a contributor's life in Fedora was easy because there was trust and good will. I'm not saying that all recent changes are bad (and as FESCo member I'm responsible for some of them), but in some areas it has become too much red tape to work efficiently. Give the community the control (back) and get all groups the same resources.
  • Past work summary: Senior Engineer at Kolab Systems, Maintainer and release manager of the Kolab groupware server. Long time Fedora contributor, proven packager, sponsor and ambassador. Currently maintaining the LXDE desktop and Spin, Xfce and some more stuff, all together ~ 150 packages. Member of FESCo since Fedora 12.
  • Future plans: 1. Work on the "updates-features" repository implementation for the users who want new versions during a Fedora release. 2. Improve QA to make Fedora more user friendly. 3. Make anaconda work well for all desktop environments with a reasonable package selection. 4. Bring the Kolab groupware server in Fedora.
