I am using and working on Fedora since its first release Fedora 1. Even before that I used Red Hat Linux 7, 8 and 9 versions. I joined as a contributor to Fedora Project in 2006. I became package maintainer in 2006 and then Sponsor for packager group in early 2007. My first package contribution was gutenprint along with its dependency perl-perlmenu. I was a FESCo member for 2 years. I keep contributing to various upstream projects.

My Work

I do package maintenance which involves bug fixing, submitting downstream patches back to their upstream projects.

Packages in Fedora

I have also done many package reviews in Fedora.
