Greetings. I work for Red Hat as the Fedora Infrastructure Lead. This means I work on keeping all the servers that run Fedora running. I work in the CPE ( Community platform engineering ) group within Red Hat.

I also do lots of other things for Fedora in my "spare" time.

Things I do/work on in Fedora:

  • I've been on FESCo since it has existed.
  • I am a SCMAdmin, and process SCM requests for new packages or branches sometimes.
  • I'm a packaging Sponsor and help review and sponsor new packagers.
  • I (co)maintain the Xfce packages in Fedora, as well as many others.
  • I Help out as time permits in #fedora on freenode.
  • I run the fedbot that is used in #fedora
  • I Help maintain the Xfce spin and am active in the SPINS sig.
  • I am in EPEL-releng and help process requests there as well as help run EPEL meetings.
  • I am in the sysadmin-tools group and help manage and create new mailing lists.
