Slavek Kabrda (bkabrda)


  • Mission Statement:
    • Ensure that Fedora is a developer friendly distribution well integrated with upstream tooling.
  • Past work summary:
    • I've been member of Env & Stacks WG since its inception.
    • I was Ruby and JRuby maintainer for more than a year.
    • I've been primary maintainer of Python 2 and 3 interpreter packages for more than year and a half. I also maintain a decent number of Python extension packages in Fedora.
    • I'm author of DevAssistant, a tool which is supposed to help developers with their everyday tasks. DevAssistant has been part of Fedora Workstation since Fedora 21.
  • Future plans:
    • Ensure that Fedora's developer tooling integrates well with upstream tools, instead of fighting them.
      • Continue driving the DevPI pilot, which is supposed to create a downstream Fedora mirror of Python Package Index. Try to apply the experience from this pilot to other languages.
      • Review the "rings" proposal for with other members of Env & Stacks WG and put it to work. Most importantly, we should promote Copr/Playground and define how non-RPM content of the outer rings (as mentioned in the DevPI plans) fits into Fedora future.
    • Make sure that DevAssistant continuously improves, making it an ultimate developer tool - and Fedora along with it.
    • Continue driving the migration of Fedora to Python 3 as a default - for benefit of Fedora and wider Python community.
    • Evolve Python packaging in Fedora to be more automated and thus simpler. The concepts and thoughts from the improvements should be appliable to packaging of other (dynamic) languages as well.
