Nominations

Josh Boyer (jwb)

  • Mission Statement: Encourage and enable Fedora usage in new areas and for new work flows (e.g. Secondary Architectures and cross-compiling). Help focus on Quality of Fedora releases.
  • Past work summary: Member of FESCo for the last 3 terms. Member of Rel-Eng (on temporary hiatus). Maintain a small number of packages.
  • Future plans: Seek out pain points within the Fedora contributor base and attempt to help alleviate them.

Dan Horák (sharkcz)

Nominated by RadekVokal

  • Mission Statement: My goal is to make Fedora a perfect base for server operating system again in addition to current desktop orientation (see DanHorak/ServerSIG)
  • Past work summary: I spent 10 years as an administrator of Linux systems in a heterogeneous environment and I am long time Red Hat Linux and Fedora user. Now I work for Red Hat Czech in the BaseOS team and in addition to maintaining some packages around scsi I maintain many mainframe (s390) specific ones. I also participate in the development of Fedora for s390 a.k.a. Zedora.
  • Future plans: Because today's Fedora is tomorrow's RHEL or CentOS I want to bring more server people into our community, make it easier for regular maintainers to participate in secondary architectures.

Jon Stanley (jds2001)

  • Mission Statement: My goals include making Fedora a better place to "live" for all contributors, providing voice to the QA and bug triage functions within Fedora to FESCo, and continuing to improve and refine the features process.
  • Past work summary: I've spent about 10 years using Linux is some form or another (hard to believe!), about the past 7 being a professional sysadmin full-time. I'm a current member of FESCo, and continue to lead the bug triage efforts. I also contribute to infrastructure and maintain a few packages. And I don't bite, I promise, but I am a super-ninja :).
  • Future Goals: Continue to make Fedora the world-class operating system that it deserves to be, by giving voice on FESCo to the community at large and attempt to represent them, however, making tough decisions when they need to be made.

Bill Nottingham (notting)

  • Mission Statement: Make Fedora the best free distribution there is. Work the Feature process to highlight the best new things going in, and promote the changes Fedora works on. Work on processes to help with quality of the release. Attempt to balance the occasionally warring user factions of Fedora.
  • Past work summary: Linux user for 14 years, starting with Slackware before moving to Red Hat Linux 3.95 (Starting with a beta. Silly.) Red Hat employee for over 10 years, working on various parts of the distribution. Currently upstream for initscripts, chkconfig, mash, and tirelessly working to kill kudzu. Maintainer & co-maintainer of various other bits. Fedora board member since its inception, and FESCo member. Fringe member of infrastructure, and contributor to rel-eng.
  • Future Goals: Make Fedora the best free distribution out there, and enable a diverse set of communities around it. World domination too, I suppose.
  • Anything else: Feel free to contact me with questions.
