I hereby would like to announce my candidacy for the Climate 
(Reservations) PTL.

A brief history about me : I'm playing with Software Engineering and 
Operations since more than 10 years, with a special focus on Openstack 
since the Essex release. I promoted Openstack in my previous company as 
the top solution for our internal cloud solution, and now I'm working as 
Software Engineer at Bull within the open-source XLCloud [1] project 
which is an international collaborative project.

I joined the Climate project in the early stages from the idea of having 
a resource planner in Nova [2]. I also led the subteam responsible for 
delivering physical hosts reservations in Climate and dedicated long 
time about spec'ing what would be a global resource planner for both 
virtual and physical reservations. I also engaged and delivered 
important core features like unittesting framework or policies 
management. You can see my reviews [3] and my commits [4] for appreciation.
About Climate visibility, I also engaged the initiative of having weekly 
meetings and now I'm chair of the meetings half time, with respect to 
the virtual reservations subteam. I also copresented Climate during the 
Openstack Icehouse Summit in HK.

I see the PTL position as a communication point for the development of 
the community around Climate and its integration within the Openstack 
ecosystem, not only focusing to the code but also listening to the users 
point of view. As a corollary to this, his duties also include to be the 
interface in between Openstack developers community and Climate 
stakeholders for defining the good path of leveraging Openstack with 
Climate. Last but not least, I'm convinced that the PTL position should 
be rotating in order to express all the variations of our team 
contributors, subteams and sponsors.

For the Icehouse release, I'm seeing the next steps for Climate as 
having its first release end of January, the discussions with the 
Technical Committee about an project incubation and a new Program about 
Reservations. I'm also seeing a tighter interaction with Nova, Heat and 
Horizon for the end of this cycle. In particular about Nova, there are 
various aspects that have to be addressed and have already been 
presented during a Nova design unconference session [5].

Anyway, I know we do a great job, and I'm having pleasure with working 
with you all guys !
