Work in Fedora

A package maintainer and a provenpackager mainly focusing on the Modularity & Host and Platforn / Base Runtime efforts and, mostly in the past now, the Perl ecosystem. I'm also a packaging sponsor; if you'd like to contribute to Fedora, especially something related to Perl, don't hesitate to contact me -- I'd be happy to help you out.

A member of FESCo serving as the engineerng representative on the Fedora Council.
