Annotation of statements/murray, Revision HEAD
1.2 murray 1: I have served on the Core Team for the past 6 years, and I'd like to
2: again serve to continue my work. During the past 2 years I have
3: primarily divided my time between advocacy, corporate relations, the
4: website/documentation, and Summer of Code. In previous years I was
5: also involved in release engineering and installation tools. Over the
6: next 2 years I will again devote my time to these activities.
8: Some of my specific accomplishments over this past term include:
10: * Leading the FreeBSD participation in two successive Google Summer of
11: Code programs (with help of rwatson and all the mentors). We had 46
12: students in the past two years of participation in this program, and
13: 33 students in the first two years. This amounts to nearly $400,000
14: of investment in FreeBSD development by Google and helped bring at
15: least 8 new full-fledged committers into the project.

1.2 murray 18:
19: * Continuing to improve our web presence, with integration with social
20: networking sites and mapping APIs to spruce up the events and
21: usergroups areas and generally modernize our site. I've also
22: developed a voting mechanism for development ideas to improve the
23: process of example projects for new contributors and summer of code
24: students . This builds on the design done by Emily Boyd, a
25: Summer of Code student I mentored in 2005. I'm currently working
27: the website.

32: * Participating on doceng, marketing, and release engineering teams,
33: in roughly that order of activity.
35: Contributions during prior terms on core include: primary release
36: engineer for FreeBSD 4.x, maintainer of sysinstall, maintainer of isc
37: dhclient, etc.
39: In the past I've also given talks about FreeBSD at conferences such as
40: the O'Reilly European OSCon, BSDCan, GUFICon Milan, BSDCon Europe,
41: BSDCon, USENIX NordU, NYCBSDCon, and Linux Expo Shanghai. I've also
42: spoken at user groups and universities in Japan, Ukraine, Russia,
43: China, U.S., the U.K. I've also presented about FreeBSD to companies
44: such as Wells Fargo Bank, Fry's Electronics, TechTV, and more.
46: I work at Google in San Francisco and devote 20% of my time to working
47: on projects such as Summer of Code, open source conference
48: sponsorship, sponsored development projects, and other open source
51: I worked from 1997-2001 at Walnut Creek CDROM/BSDi/Wind River
52: building FreeBSD-based products for end-users and I think this gave me a
53: unique product- and user-focused perspective on FreeBSD development that is
54: important for the project.
