I'm Michael Hampton. I've been using Fedora for its entire existence, and Red Hat Commercial Linux before that, starting around 3.0.3 or so. Until now, though, I've never really had a good opportunity to contribute back, aside from the occasional bug report.
I've been a system administrator for many years, working for myself and clients of my choice. I am perhaps most obviously visible as a community moderator of Server Fault, a site in the Stack Exchange network. http://serverfault.com/users/126632
I do drop in on Freenode on occasion, but since my nick is io_error I am often confused with a famous individual, and as a result I don't spend much time there.
I am doing some work with Windows Azure, and I need to run Fedora on it. While the kernel contains all the necessary drivers, the Linux agent software that Microsoft provides, and which Linux VMs need to be provisioned properly on Azure, isn't packaged for Fedora. I intend to change that, and I have submitted a review request for my packaging of the agent. Since I haven't officially packaged for Fedora before, I need a sponsor.
The review request can be found at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1006116 I would appreciate your comments and, if you can, your sponsorship.
Ultimately I want to look at automating cloud image builds of Fedora for Windows Azure similarly to the way it is done for Amazon EC2, and I would appreciate hearing from anyone who can tell me more about how Fedora currently does this.
Thanks for reading,
