From Fedora Project Wiki


I'm in the PnT Devops development group at Red Hat! It's kind of like the "internal" version of the Fedora Infrastructure team.

I'm currently working on some design-phase work for Infrastructure/Factory2 and Modularization/Infra.


Projects I've worked on

  • I wrote fedmsg, the Fedora Infrastructure message bus, and most of the related services.
  • There's datanommer which stores the fedmsg history in a postgres database (and marks up the stored messages with associated metadata).
  • Closely related is datagrepper, a web services that allows people and programs to query the fedmsg history.
  • Flowing from that, I wrote Fedora Badges which uses the fedmsg stream to award "badges" to contributors based on their contributions.
  • I wrote FMN, the centralized notifications service. It allows users to get direct IRC messages or emails about a variety of topics based on self-service preferences.
  • One of many more fedmsg parts -- I wrote github2fedmsg which allows contributors to map their GitHub activity onto our message bus.
  • I try to be generally helpful with our infrastructure ansible repo, improving scripts and configuration layout.
  • Although I didn't write the initial go-through, I've become a co-maintainer of the fedora-packages app, working on enhancements, repairs, and operations.
  • I wrote a CLI tool called pkgwat to call up quick information about packages across branches.
  • The first thing I ever wrote for Fedora was fedora-tagger (before I was an RH employee).
  • In 2014, I started writing the bodhi2 frontend.

I also try to maintain some packages.

Lighter weight, but still fun:

Further upstream

  • I've put work into Moksha, one of the components underlying the fedmsg stack.
  • I wrote and maintain an awesome extension to taskwarrior called bugwarrior. It syncs issues from github, bitbucket, trac, bugzilla, megaplan, teamlab, redmien, jira, activecollab, phabricator and versionone to a local task database. I use it to produce my weekly timesheets.
  • A little script, but I really like ansi2html (also for timesheets).

Way back when...

  • I wrote a neat webapp called narcissus that visualizes web server traffic in real time.
  • And my first major open source endeavor was as the mis-fortuned maintainer of toscawidgets2.


Actual tasks

You can review my timesheets at http://threebean.org/timesheets/latest.html to see what I'm working on right now.

Here's the gist of how I make that report.
