Where's Matthew this week (an experiment in Fedora Project Leader visibilty...)

Hi everyone! I’ve been FPL for a while now, and one difficulty I still have is being pulled between internal RH stuff [1] and being active and visible in Fedora itself. Sometimes I jump back and forth based on what’s most on fire, but that’s far from ideal. I’m working on keeping the balance. And, as part of that, I’m going to try an experiment of posting what I’m expecting for each week at a high level to this thread, every Monday. [2]

Feel free to comment or ask questions or tell me I’m missing something.

Oh, and I have a question for you: I can set the topic to delete older replies, because it’s meant to be more of a “what’s up right now” thing than a history. But if anyone thinks I should leave that off so posts accumulate, let me know!

  1. Fedora advocacy, keeping people and processes connected, etc., as well as training, mentoring, meetings, and other regular aspects of a job ↩︎

  2. ADHD makes keeping to routines like this extra difficult for me, so… may not be perfect. But let’s see how it goes. ↩︎



This week is not going to be as planned. :-/

I tested positive for Covid-19 last night, and am feeling pretty sick today[1]. I can breathe okay and no sign of lowered blood oxygen, but I’m pretty tired and am going through boxes of tissues.

I had planned to have the end of the week off as my parents were coming to visit, but we’re canceling that… so I may be back online at the end of the week.

We’ll see how things go!

  1. made it three years… sigh ↩︎



Oh hey, lookat that week gone by. Mostly: DIscourse merge finalization / cleanup, plus my broadband connection was horrible and I had to convince multiple techs over many calls and hours that it was their equipment (it was) not mine (it wasn’t). Plus one of our cats passed away. So that generally was not my favorite week ever.


Am in Spain with my family on a vacation.


The red-hat-cpe team — has an internal meeting, to which @jflory7 and I are invited.


Well, there went March! (This is generally good. I hate March. February would be the worst month, but it is only 28 days long, so March wins.)

Where’s Matthew yesterday and today? I realized all of the travel totally wiped me out — even though some of it was vacation. Taking a few days to do nothing at all.
