Hey everyone!

Starting the process of moving Chef into the “big tent” of OpenStack, I’d like to offer my candidacy for the PTL of the Liberty cycle.

My Qualifications

I have been shepherding the OpenStack Chef community since July of last year. My role at Chef is the “OpenStack guy.” I have stepped up and done my best to backfill Matt Ray and have the community move forward.  Under my shepherding we have 2 weekly meetings, one Monday via Google hangouts, recorded here [1] and IRC meetings on Thursday which are recorded here [2].

My Plans for Liberty Cycle

With a working testing-stack my overarching goal it so create a an automated continuous integration system that is publicly accessible and is also initially a non-voting member of our community. We have made huge leaps and bounds with the progress and I don’t want to loose the momentum. Along with the automation, I’m actively recruiting for the community and attempting to gain more people to help test and join our community. This has proven to be challenging, but it’s important for our community to grow.

With the movement towards the OpenStack Big Tent this’ll require multiple parallel tasks and collaboration between multiple companies and institutions. I believe I help shepherding us through this and believe I’m up for that challenge.

Thank you for your time reading this, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to me jj at chef.io <mailto:jj at chef.io> or on irc as j^2.
