I was on the first Fedora Engineering/Extras Steering Committee (FESCo) and served as a chairman for the second, until I had to step down from the position due to conflicting interests with my day job when Core and Extras merged in early. I then helped getting the EPEL effort running and served as the EPEL Steering Committee chairmen till February 2008.

In parallel to my Fedora contributions within the Fedora project I did a lot of work for one of the most used 3rd-party add-on package repository for Fedora; later I helped getting this repo merged with two others to form the the most well known and still mostly widely used add-on repository for Fedora.

These days mostly inactive in Fedora due to time constrains; I'm maintaining just a few Fedora packages that I need for work and maintain repositories with Fedora packages that contain vanilla Linux kernel's.

I'm still keeping a eye on some of the Fedora lists, but not as closely as I used to; so if there is anything Fedora-related you want to know from me or if you need my help with something then better CC me.
