Although I may not have all the deep technical knowledge of some FESCo
members, I'd be willing to serve in this capacity.  I do have
experience working with different groups in Fedora, including the
Board and FESCo, and release related groups like Rel-Eng, Docs, L10n,
and Websites.

I also manage the team in Red Hat that supports our infrastructure and
applications.  That could come in handy in helping the Council direct
resources to work on the priorities needed for Fedora to succeed.

However, I want to be clear that my being involved is *not* a
pre-requisite for that support.  I would expect to support Matthew and
the Council regardless.  I'm sure there are other worthy candidates,
and I'd work with any of them who fill this role.
