== KDE SIG ==
== KDE SIG ==
As a member of Fedora's KDE SIG, I work to improve and promote the KDE Plasma Desktop environment on top of Fedora Linux. Naturally it's an easy job ;) When I remember to (which unfortunately isn't often enough) I write the KDE beat for Fedora weekly news. I'm also involved in KDE's Promotions team.
=== Fedora Summer Coding 2010 ===
In the summer of 2010, I am working with [[User:Jreznik|Jaroslav Reznik]] on the creation of a [[Summer_Coding_2010_ideas_-_KDE_Netbook_Spin|KDE Netbook Edition Spin]] as mentors, along with the rest of the SIG to some extent. This project was brought to fruition through the Fedora Summer Coding SIG, and is similar to Google's Summer of Code.
=== Google Summer of Code 2010 ===
In the summer of 2010, I also worked upstream in the KDE project, sponsored by Google to work on KDEPIM for KDE's involvement in Summer of Code. The accepted proposal was the creation of a Plasma-based replacement of Kontact's summary page. You can [ follow my progress] or [ read my proposal].
== Marketing ==
I'm involved in Fedora's marketing team. I work in marketing mostly to complement my ambassador jobs, as I believe the two groups could work better if they were more closely integrated. I helped to organize the [[Marketing FAD 2010]] and was one of the attendees in March 2010. I am also interested in generating marketing materials for Spins, as they don't get the time of day (in terms of marketing) that they deserve. I was one of the primary authors behind Fedora 13's Beta release announcement, as well.
I am also a member of the development team of [[Fedora-tour]].
== Package Maintainer ==
I'm a [[PackageMaintainers|Package Maintainer]] sponsored by [[User:kkofler|Kevin Kofler]]<br>
I usually package software I find interesting and actually use.
* [ Packages maintained by me]
* [ My Koji Builds]
I am also an RPMFusion package maintainer, owing mlt and kdenlive.
