Hello all,

I'd like announce my candidacy for Heat PTL.

It's been a pleasure to be part of such a great team for about a year now, and that's the main driver for me to want to represent all of you. I trust that as a team we'll continue do a good job delivering nice software, and I hope I could become the team delegate for the next 6 months.

If I had to choose my slogan for this period, it would be "Less features, more users". I think we've reached the point where Heat fills a solid portion of the use cases it aimed at the beginning, so we should focus on everything else:
 * It starts by more functional testing, via more tempests and grenade integration to make sure upgrades are fine. I hope it'll continue to improve our stability
 * Then I'd like to look at performance, to make sure we're good enough so that people doesn't notice Heat when deploying it
 * We should also maintain our efforts on documentation
 * Finally, we should support template authors, by talking to the OpenStack community (TripleO, Trove, Murano,...) but also outside to application developers. I hope we can push contributions to heat-templates (or another repository) for better community interaction.

I'm willing to learn if I'll actually have some time to do more than one of those things while holding the position!
