About me

I work for Red Hat, in a team with Lennart Poettering, David Herrmann, Tom Gundersen, Lukáš Nykrýn, Michal Sekletar, Frantisek Šumšal, and others.

I'm working on systemd: bug fixes and usability improvements and documentation and the build system and journal-over-the-network-features and the Python bindings.

I'm also involved in the new Fedora doing many different things. Recently I have been: - renaming all python2 binary packages to follow the guidelines and have a "python2-" prefix. The progress of this effort is visible in, - a tool to generate statistics of protections in systemd units generated html, - moving Fedora Packaging guidelines over to version-controlled sphinx sources FPC ticket #727, generated html.

Packages I help maintain in Fedora

I believe package maintainership should be more communal and automatic than it currently is. I have too many packages, and at various times they don't receive the attention they should. If you feel some package needs an update, or you find a nice cleanup to do, or are missing some features, feel free to

  • submit spec file patches
  • apply for comainternership
  • if you have provenpackager privileges, just go ahead and push changes directly.

I won't mind, and if I did mind, there's always git revert.
