"Stuff that Greg did for Red Hat or Fedora at various times

Red Hat duties

Fedora Governance

I was responsible for building the Fedora governance model as it currently exists; the goal was to build a structure that empowers non-RH employees to work as effectively in the Fedora community as Red Hat employees do. Results have been mixed, but generally positive. :)

Principles I lived by during my tenure as FPL:

  1. If it can't be run effectively by a non-Redhatter, then it shouldn't bear the Fedora name.
  2. It's okay for the community to be disappointed -- but it's never okay for the community to be surprised.

Stuff I've done:

Other Governance Experience

Keynotes / Presentations / Interviews

  • Upcoming: Presentation at POSSCON, April 2010
  • Interview with LinuxQuestions.org from May 2009
  • Interview with Armen Zambrano at SIGCSE 2009 (flash video)
  • Interview at GOSCON, the government open source conference in Washington DC, 2009 (flash video)
  • Interview with Paul Frields about Fedora 10, December 2008 (flash video)
  • Interview with Phoronix, March 2006
  • Keynote at Linuxfest Northwest, 2006

Doing my best to track all of these down. It'll take a while. :)
