I was on the first Fedora Engineering/Extras Steering Committee (FESCo) and served as a chairman for the second, until I had to step down from the position due to conflicting interests with my day job when Fedora Core and Extras merged and was much praised for my work by former Fedora project leader Greg DeKoenigsberg. After that, I helped getting the EPEL effort running and served as the EPEL Steering Committee chairmen till February 2008.

In parallel to my Fedora contributions within the Fedora project I did a lot of work for one of the most used 3rd-party add-on package repository for Fedora; later I helped getting this repo merged with two others to form the the most well known and still mostly widely used add-on repository for Fedora.

These days mostly inactive in Fedora due to time constrains; I'm maintaining just a few Fedora packages that I need for work and maintain repositories with Fedora packages that contain vanilla Linux kernel's.

I'm still keeping a eye on some of the Fedora lists, but not as closely as I used to; so if there is anything Fedora-related you want to know from me or if you need my help with something then better CC me.
