About Me

herrold outside his favorite coffee shop: Staufs

  -- George Bernard Shaw 

In late 2017, I finally got vexed enough with some Fedoraproject decisions to seek office to add some weight to my voice calling out in the wilderness of some poor decisions that I've been troubled by, on the mailing lists and in IRC

Nota Bene: Despite incautious language in some parts of the Fedoraproject web presence, I am NOT a partner of that entity, nor in partnership with the project. People finding the words: partnership in project documents are encouraged to advise me of such, so I might seek the removal of such term
