I would like to ask if someone would sponsor me to host Upstream Release
Monitoring on a Infrastructure machine.
To host this, an account with cron and unrestricted internet access
would be needed and some python packages. The accound would need to
store a plain text Red Hat bugzilla password with fedorabugs privileges,
therefore everyone with root access to that box (or the host of the
virtual machine, if it is one) should be allowed to know it and have at
least the same bugzilla privileges. I would prefer some Fedora or at
least a RHEL 6 machine to have some more up to date python available.
If anyone would sponsor this request, I will write up a formal Request

I am joining this group because the Fedora Project has given to me a lot
experience and work oportunities and I would like to give to the project a
devolution for that.
What I realy like most in my job, and would like to do if possible, is
Server Administration. I am daily administrating several Fedoras, Redhat and
CentOS servers with services like: apache, qmail, nfs, squid, ftp, yum
repositories, among others.
I have about 8 hours per week, most of them near and in weekend.
I really hope to be usefull to this project and this group.
Thank you very much.

My name is Larry Brower and I would like to help out with the Fedora
Infrastructure team. I have been using Linux since Red Hat 5.2 and have
been working with Linux as a system administrator full time since 2004.
I am currently employed as a level 2 system administrator for
Hostgator.Com, a large web hosting provider so I work with most of the
technology in use on the Fedora servers almost daily and have work with
everyone from small sites to large payment processors and ad networks
over the past 6 years. I currently do not spend much time on IRC but am
always available via emailand phone and should be on IRC more often in
the near future. I am also a Fedora ambassador so can be found in the
FAS already. I have no issues with asking questions for things I am
unfamiliar with since I am fully aware that every organization does
things differently. I am interested in helping out with the
sysadmin-noc, sysadmin-hosted and/or sysadmin-releng FIG's but am
willing to help where needed.
Thanks for your time,

My name is Chris Egeland, and I'm a 21 year old computer enthusiast living in Akron, Ohio USA. I've been interested in Linux for approximately 6-8 years now, and have played around with a handful of distributions in my lifetime, varying from Slackware, Knoppix, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, and others. In the past few years, I've volunteered in varying capacities for small to mid-sized websites running varying distros of Linux. I've done a little bit of work with Django, some pretty extensive work with phpBB, MediaWiki, and a few other custom scripts that were developed for a specific site. So, with the experience of working with these packages, I have learned PHP, MySQL, and a bit of Python (something that I'm working on learning more extensively right now).
Outside of scripting and programming languages, I am pretty decent at writing configuration files (I actually read documentation, believe it or not). I work regularly with Apache Vhost configurations and httpd.conf configurations for a couple of sites. My own webserver currently runs Apache, PHP, MySQL, and will probably be running a Django site in the future once I am a little more familiar with Python.
I've got a bit of experience under my belt with administering Linux servers. Mostly Debian, but with a recent project I have been working on, I have a bit of experience working with Fedora as well.
I would love to help out however possible, and if there is room for me on the Infrastructure team, I would gladly step up to the plate to learn whatever is necessary. If anyone would like more information about myself, please feel free to ask.
I have regular internet access. I am based in the Eastern US timezone, and I have the ability to be in contact with the team at almost any time (IRC/email anywhere if necessary).
Like I mentioned earlier, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
I look forward to hearing back from everyone,
We have freeze from 2010-11-22 20:00 UTC -> 2010-11-29 11:00 UTC.
Please check any changes on the list and get 2 +1 to make sure things
can be 'repaired' fixed if things go wrong thanks.
Freeze is due to the fact that in the US we celebrate the time killed
a bunch of turkeys and corn stalks and tried to all get along.
