Hello everyone,

I'd like to announce my candidacy for the Senlin PTL position during
the Stein cycle.

I've been contributing to Senlin since the Queens cycle and became a
core reviewer during the Rocky cycle.  I work for Blizzard
Entertainment where I'm an active operator and upstream developer for
Senlin.  I believe this dual role gives me a unique perspective on the
use cases for Senlin.

If elected as PTL, I will focus on the following priorities:

* Testing:
More integration tests are needed to avoid any regression due to new
feature implementations.  More rally tests are needed to cover stress
testing scenarios in HA deployments of Senlin.

* Bug fixes:
Actively monitor incoming bug reports and triage them.  Clean out old
bugs that can no longer be reproduced.

* Technical debt:
Identify areas of code that can be reimplemented more efficiently
and/or simplified.

* User documentation:
Restructure the Senlin documentation to make it easier for the users to
find the relevant information.

* Grow the Senlin community:
My goal is to grow the Senlin user base and encourage more developers
to contribute. To do so, I propose changing the weekly meetings to
office hours and hold those office hours consistently so that new users
and/or developers can ask questions and receive feedback. Moreover, I
want to increase Senlin's visibility in the developer community by more
actively using the mailing list.  One idea would be to send out Senlin
project updates to the mailing list throughout the cycle like many
other projects are doing now.

Thanks for your consideration.
