I'd like to announce my candidacy for the Message Program PTL position.

I've been part of this program since its inception. Along with a really
amazing team, I've been working on changing the openstack messaging
service reality for the last 2 years.

Zaqar has a set of features that I consider essential for different use
cases. However, some of this features are very specific and could be
supported differently.

Therefore, my focus for the next cycle will be working on shrinking
Zaqar's feature set down to what's really essential for most of the use

In addition to the above, I'd like to focus on expanding Zaqar's
adoption by starting from the world it belongs to, OpenStack. We've
identified a set of projects and use-cases that we need/can cover. I
believe working together with those projects will help Zaqar to improve
and the rest of the ecosystem.

Last but not least, I'm planning to dedicate extra time into supporting
our development community and make sure Zaqar's mission, vision, goals
and internals are clear to everyone. I believe we're all working in a
community full of very talented folks and the feedback from each one of
them has an immense value for the project, team and the rest of the

Thanks for reading,

Flavio Percoco
