My name is James. Jerry James. I have never driven an Aston Martin, and I don't own a tuxedo. My great purpose in life is to own a shoe phone someday.
I started using Linux around 1995. I started with Slackware, but discovered RedHat the next year. I have had every major RedHat and Fedora release on one or the other of my computers. I am an inveterate drive-by patcher; Google my name to see the projects where I have shown up unannounced, dropped a boatload of patches on the maintainers, and then disappeared again.
I was a Computer Science professor for 8 years, and am now working as a software architect for a large nonprofit organization headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have a wife, 4 kids, a cat, and a mortgage.
Activities within Fedora
I currently maintain and co-maintain a handful of Fedora packages. I have many more pending more work by me. See my Fedora People page for a list. I am into static analysis of program text and formal reasoning. You can probably see both interests in the list of pending packages.
