Questions

What is your background in EPEL? What have you worked on and what are you doing now?

I’ve been working with EPEL since its inception – having been a user of “Enterprise Linux” since CentOS 4. I became a Fedora packager a few years ago with an explicit interest in the EPEL side of things. Little did I know I’d also end up caring greatly about the Fedora side and I came back from the dark side (Arch) and am a Fedora desktop user again.

I’m the infrastructure lead for AlmaLinux and through that have a great care for EPEL and everything it empowers users to do – not just for AlmaLinux but for the EL community at large.

Why are you running for EPEL Steering Committee member?

I feel strongly that I can help steer the direction of EPEL due to my experience in the ecosystem.
