I am writing to announce my candidacy for the PTL for Quantum for the 
Grizzly release.  A quantum leap has been made with the up and coming 
Folsom release. Dan and the guys have done a tremendous job. More 
challenges await us in Grizzly. I started working on Quantum towards the 
end of the Essex release cycle. Since becoming involved in the project I 
have been completely focused on Quantum. My first contributions were in 
F-1 and in F-2 I was elected core (my wife would like me to spend a 
little more time with the family). I also had the privilege of hacking 
Quantum into oVirt [1].

For the Grizzly release I'd like us to be able to focus on the following:
- growing the Quantum community
- improve and complete the integration with nova
- focus on quality and documentation
- address architectural and performance issues
- incorporate new technologies and features into the project
- ensure that we maintain a stable Folsom release
- start to think towards version upgrades and backward compatibility

I am very lucky to have been given the opportunity by Red Hat to work on 
the project and be involved in OpenStack. When I am not working on 
Quantum I run.
