Nominations

Josh Boyer (jwb)

  • Mission Statement: Encourage and enable Fedora usage in new areas and for new work flows (e.g. Secondary Architectures and cross-compiling). Help focus on Quality of Fedora releases.
  • Past work summary: Member of FESCo for the last 3 terms. Member of Rel-Eng (on temporary hiatus). Maintain a small number of packages.
  • Future plans: Seek out pain points within the Fedora contributor base and attempt to help alleviate them.

Dan Horák (sharkcz)

Nominated by RadekVokal

  • Mission Statement: My goal is to make Fedora a perfect base for server operating system again in addition to current desktop orientation (see DanHorak/ServerSIG)
  • Past work summary: I spent 10 years as an administrator of Linux systems in a heterogeneous environment and I am long time Red Hat Linux and Fedora user. Now I work for Red Hat Czech in the BaseOS team and in addition to maintaining some packages around scsi I maintain many mainframe (s390) specific ones. I also participate in the development of Fedora for s390 a.k.a. Zedora.
  • Future plans: Because today's Fedora is tomorrow's RHEL or CentOS I want to bring more server people into our community, make it easier for regular maintainers to participate in secondary architectures.

Dominik Mierzejewski (rathann)

  • Mission Statement: To ensure that Fedora remains a cutting edge, multi-purpose distribution, friendly to casual desktop users, power users and seasoned administrators alike.
  • Past work summary: I've been using Linux for the better part of the last 10 years and I've been administering various Unix systems for over 5 years at my $dayjob. I'm currently a member of the Fedora Packaging Committee and maintainer of over three dozen packages in Fedora and another dozen or so in RPMFusion (mostly scientific and multimedia packages). I'm also a contributor to various multimedia-related projects.
  • Future plans: Keep the various interest groups in Fedora from stepping on each other's (and users') toes by ensuring that new features do not introduce unwanted regressions and that changes are properly discussed and communicated. Trim down the beaureaucracy where possible. Work inside and with external repositories to ensure better integration and user experience in the area of multimedia.

Jon Stanley (jds2001)

  • Mission Statement: My goals include making Fedora a better place to "live" for all contributors, providing voice to the QA and bug triage functions within Fedora to FESCo, and continuing to improve and refine the features process.
  • Past work summary: I've spent about 10 years using Linux is some form or another (hard to believe!), about the past 7 being a professional sysadmin full-time. I'm a current member of FESCo, and continue to lead the bug triage efforts. I also contribute to infrastructure and maintain a few packages. And I don't bite, I promise, but I am a super-ninja :).
  • Future Goals: Continue to make Fedora the world-class operating system that it deserves to be, by giving voice on FESCo to the community at large and attempt to represent them, however, making tough decisions when they need to be made.

Jarod Wilson (jwilson)

  • Mission Statement: Continue to help bridge the gap between Red Hat's internal RHEL group and Fedora, provide insight from the kernel side of things, and whenever I can, play devil's (read: users') advocate on delicate issues such as codecs, which are near and dear to my heart, given my addiction to MythTV...
  • Past work summary: Long-time Linux guy, been working for Red Hat for two and a half years in the RHEL kernel group, but also a regular Fedora kernel contributor and maintainer of a number of userspace packages. Current member of FESCo.
  • Future Goals: Get Secondary Arches some more love and attention, help make life easier for 3rd-party respins (I'm involved in one myself), and work on some initiatives for improving Fedora QA, particularly in the kernel area.
