Participation in the Fedora Project

I've been involved with Fedora since the / Red Hat Linux 9 days, second half of 2003. The time I could dedicate to the project has varied a lot over the years, as did the number of packages I maintain.

I've also represented Fedora at various shows in France, mostly Solutions Linux in Paris.

I've been hired by Red Hat to work on Fedora full time since August 2012, and I now work on the next generation Mailman archiver: Hyperkitty.


Friends say I'm a nice guy. Others say, well, differently, but they are vastly outnumbered :-)
