New project leader wears the Fedora
Taking over for 'Laughlin' 14 release
By Timothy Prickett Morgan

Paul Frields, who has been getting his paycheck from Red Hat to run the 
Fedora development Linux variant since 2008, is moving back inside the 
company to work on Enterprise Linux, and an outsider named Jared Smith 
is being brought in as the new Fedora Project Leader.

Frields joined Red Hat in February 2008, replacing Max Spevack, another 
Red Hat employee who ran the open source Linux development product from 
February 2006 until Frields took over. Smith will take over the FPL 
position (which is a full-time job with a Red Hat paycheck) to steer the 
development of Fedora 14, something that Frields already got the ball 
rolling on.
