Annotation of statements/gnn, Revision HEAD
1.1 gnn 1: # Please enter a brief statement describing your background
2: # with the FreeBSD project, and your motivations for standing
3: # as a candidate for the core election.
1.2 gnn 5: My history with FreeBSD goes back to version 2.2.7 which I installed
6: onto a Toshiba laptop, and my history with BSD in general goes back
7: to my college days when I was first introduced to a version of 4.3
8: BSD on a Pyramid. Since then I have contributed various bits of
9: code, mentored a few new committers, co-authored a book on FreeBSD,
10: joined the security and release engineering teams, and helped to
11: get the AsiaBSDCon conferences going again.
13: I have served for nearly 2 years on core and it has been an interesting
14: experience. I can say that when I signed up to run for my first term
15: I really didn't know what I was getting myself into, but now that I've
16: done it, well, I want to do it again.
18: In the last two years on core I've dealt with various projects and
19: issues, including GPLv3 and various vendors donating code back to
20: the project. I have also dealt with the less fun aspect of core,
21: such as arbitrating disagreements, which, it turns out, was not as
22: bad as I feared it would be.
24: My goals now are much the same as when I ran the last time; to help
25: increase the exposure of FreeBSD, get the project into new
26: areas, such as embedded, and to help us, the developers of FreeBSD
27: to get our code into as many hands as possible.
29: Thanks for your consideration,
