About me

I work for Red Hat, in a team with Lukáš Nykrýn, Michal Sekletar, Frantisek Šumšal, David Tardon, Dmitry Levin, and others.

I'm working on systemd: bug fixes, usability improvements, general project maintenance, documentation, the build system, journal-over-the-network-features and the Python bindings. I'm also active in the "uapi group".

List of Change proposals and other things I am/was doing in Fedora:

Packages I help maintain in Fedora

I believe package maintainership should be more communal and automatic than it currently is. I have too many packages, and at various times they don't receive the attention they should. If you feel some package needs an update, or you find a nice cleanup to do, or are missing some features, feel free to

  • submit spec file patches
  • apply for comainternership
  • if you have provenpackager privileges, just go ahead and push changes directly.

I won't mind, and if I did mind, there's always git revert.
