Hey OpenStack Community,
I would like to submit my name for Cinder PTL for the Queens release.
For those of you who may not know me, I have been active in OpenStack
since early 2013.Soon after starting with the community I started
working with the Cinder Team and was nominated for Core Team Member
status shortly after that.
My Cinder Career has had high points like the Cheesecake vs Tiramisu
naming and had low points like the famous Wifi Fiasco of 2015.I have
been fortunate enough while working with Cinder to achieve Stable Core
status, been able to serve as the Oslo Liaison and now most recently I
am also serving as the Documentation Liaison.So, I do see a wide swath
of the project.
We have been blessed, as a project, with great leadership over the years
and I would be honored to continue in that tradition.I have worked
closely with Sean McGinnis during his time as PTL and feel that I could
come up to speed in the role quickly given that experience.I also am
very fortunate, as the Cloud Storage Lead for Lenovo’s Cloud Technology
Center to be in a position and have support to make time for the PTL role.
I feel that the Cinder project is currently entering a new era and faces
a number of challenges in the coming releases.Many of our seasoned
members have been pulled to other priorities and in response to that I
want to continue to make it easier to bring new people into the Cinder
team.I have been active in the Upstream Institute training and have
created the On-Boarding content that is currently available for
Cinder.Both of these are resources I hope we can continue to grow to
facilitate bringing new members into the team.My current focus on
documentation will also, hopefully, make it easier for everyone to work
with and contribute to Cinder.
Cinder has gone through a number of releases trying to add new
features.While some new features do deserve more attention, like
Standalone Cinder, HA and integration with Containers, I feel our focus
is changing.Now we have started to swing towards focusing on fixing
Cinder and making it more stable and user friendly.This is a trend I
would like to see continue during the next release.
Thank you for taking the time to consider me for Queens PTL.I hope I may
have the opportunity to lead this great and talented team!
Jay Bryant (jungleboyj)
