Brief whois

I am a community demangler and gardener, working for a team at Red Hat who are community catalysts, a.k.a. Community Architecture. Read up on my [#Goals] to get a better idea of the work I am doing. For technical skills, you can consider me to be equivalent to a senior systems administrator and senior technical writer, i.e., I know enough to myself in to trouble and half way back out again.

Goals

This section covers current work and personal goals that are all relevant to my work in Community Architecture, which includes Fedora and other community goals. Each goal has a corresponding task section on User:Quaid/Tasks for goals.

Community goals for 2009

These goals are effective starting February 2009 and continue through calendar year 2009 until the end of fiscal year 2010 in February 2010.

Open source ISV ecosystem

User:Quaid/Plan for FLOSS ISV Ecosystem in 2009

  • Grow the visible presence of open source ISVs in Fedora and related projects.
    • Packaging of various open source applications.
    • Beyond packaging in the distro to appliances and live OS usage.
    • SIG membership increased by N measurement.
ISV SIG
EPEL
  • Catalyze communication between RHEL and EPEL around common problems and solutions
  • Grow activity in the group
    • Increased mailing list traffic by X
    • Increased packagers and users by Y
      • Requires some knowledge of who is using EPEL
        • Can RHN provide this for RHEL customers?
  • Connect this growth back to growth in ISVs in Fedora
    • Get Z ISVs involved

Community-building knowledge

  • Gather community-building knowledge from across Fedora
    • Output wiki pages and categories as a knowledge base
    • Find several maintainers to assist in ongoing maintenance and growth of knowledge base
    • Fedora-specific knowledge primarily

FreeIPA

User:Quaid/Plan for FreeIPA in 2009

  • Measurably grow the wider community involvement as participants and contributors to FreeIPA.
    • Measurement currently unset
    • Work with Red Hat and general community members

JBoss and Fedora integration points

  • Seek places for integration of community project efforts
    • JPackage.org/Java packaging
    • JBoss.org packages in Fedora/EPEL
    • Community activity days
    • Cross-participants, cross-contributors

Fedora Documentation

  • Complete transition of leadership and responsibilities
  • Provide mentoring to leadership and new members
  • Assist in all aspects of the project

Summer coding

  • Work to maintain similar mentor, student, proposal, and acceptance statistics as previous year
    • For example, Google is running a tighter GSoC than previous years; maintaining status quo for Fedora would be an excellent result
  • Grow Summer coding marketing expertise from within Fedora
  • Work with mentors from http://JBoss.org (presuming joint project groupings again)

Personal training and development goals 2009

These are goals for my personal development, related to training or other enrichment.

RHCE re-up

Re-up RHCE status for RHEL 5.

Red Hat University

Take 3 RHU courses in addition to any required courses.

Sugar and OLPC work

Details under User:Quaid/XO development plan.

Community Development

Travel

Current and ongoing community development travel schedule is here:

http://quaid.fedorapeople.org/community-dev/travel.html

Jest Fedora Activities, Ma'am

Some of what I have here is also being tracked on the [CommunityArchitecture/KeyProjects:Community Architecture key projects page] .

JBoss.org Projects Now Watching

After JBoss World 2008 I decided to give some closer attention to projects that caught my interest at the event. These are projects that I think are ready for more attention in the enterprise and open communities. My goal is to reach out to these projects on everything from content publishing to full community development work.

Who is this guy really?

I work on the Fedora DocsProject as a writer, editor, and rabble-rouser. In 2007, someone in Raleigh, NC fell asleep on his keyboard and accidentally approved me as an appointed Fedora Project Board member. I'm happy about this; I'm not the only one who falls asleep on his keyboard and makes mistakes.

One of the biggest rabbles that I rouse and wrangle is the DocsProject/SteeringCommittee. I think they call this job "the Chair" because of all the sitting you do. As luck would have it, I was recently (re)elected to the committee in our first ever elections, and was then (re)annointed by the committee as Chair. However, it is well understood that I am serving only one more, six-month term. It is time to bring in new blood to lead this project, and to let me i) sit on my laurels instead of getting burned out, and ii) actually do some technical writing for Fedora. Update 2008-03-28: John "Lucky One-Eye" Babich has taken on the vice-chair mantle, making him successor in line six months later.

As my luck would have it, I do developer community management for Red Hat, with one of my big tools the fabulous Dev Fu blog. What's funny is we also call that "community development", but developer community development is just too awkward. Yet, still, [#Community_Development here it is as a title] ...

To keep myself having fun, I muck around in Websites and [[Infrastructure{Infrastructure]] , trying to make new stuff happen or get fixed. I'm still sitting with the EPEL steering committee , which I'll give a business/enterprise/ISV view of at the Red Hat Summit 2008 . Because it's one of the few non-coding things left to do, I also participate a bit in Marketing and (somewhat) Ambassadors , claiming to be an Ambassador for Santa Cruz, California, USA . Claiming but rarely showing, I tend to be a homebody introvert around the homestead .
