    • Lots of work with releng tasks helping out where I can.
    • I use both Xfce and Gnome3 these days (switching off)
    • I help out users in #fedora, fedora-users list and (time permitting) fedora-forum.
  • Future plans:
    • Keep Fedora 22 on track.
    • Rework the non responsive maintainer process (I know, I know, I have said I would before, but it really needs it).
