Interview with Robby Callicotte

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

I’ve been an EPEL user since the mid 2000s and a package maintainer since 2021. I brought Saltstack back into EPEL and added a nifty linter for salt states called salt-lint. I am currently working on building all the dependencies for the upcoming pagure 6 release.

Why are you running for EPEL Steering Committee member?

EPEL packages account for millions of downloads per week and are a vitally important part of the Enterprise Linux ecosystem. I earnestly believe in the project’s mission and am eager to contribute my skills and acumen to its success. I am excited about the opportunity to serve the EPEL community and help shape its future direction.
