The initial Fedora Workstation Working Group has been formed and
ratified by FESCo as ofÂ yesterday. Â FESCo has appointed me as the
coordinator and I am pleased to announce the following people as
members of the initial voting group:
Owen Taylor: He will be able to discuss upstream Gnome plans and adds
a lot of knowledge on desktop interactions.
Kalev Lember: He will be able to provide community focused input and
feedback into what is needed for a successful workstation product.
Christoph Wickert: Long time Fedora member, will bring experience from
both XFCE and LXDE desktop environments. Can help with
inter-operability aspects between DEs, etc.
LukÃ¡Å¡ Tinkl: Long time core KDE developer. Will be able to provide
feedback and insight into that DE as well as what that class of user
looks for in a workstation.
Jens Petersen: Will add i8n and developer experience to the team,
helping the workstation product in those areas.
Ryan Lerch: Fedora Design representative. Will help with UI and design
Matthias Clasen: GNOME desktop team lead. Lots of experience with
Fedora and GNOME in a variety of aspects.
Christian Schaller: Desktop manager and Fedora packager. Brings a good
knowledge of workstation products.
Josh Boyer: Coordinator.
While the above people are the initial voting members, I want to
strongly stress that we are looking for participation from anyone
wishing to produce a high quality Workstation product. Â This is
especially true if you are a member of another group that will be
impacted, such as QA, rel-eng, etc.
We are still working out details on our meeting times and IRC
channels. Â For the time being, we will be using the
firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ for our mailing list. Â Once we get
further details worked out, we’ll announce them here and on that list.
