Interview with Alberto Rodriguez Sanchez


Why are you running for the Fedora Council?

I’m very interested in finding new ways to grow the contributor base and above all the retention of our long-term contributors. The Council is the best place to help people to solve any kind of problem than can affect our community.

I know that it is a great responsibility and also know then the time of my fellow contributors is very valuable so I don’t want to waste it. I will be in every meeting and commenting on every ticket doing always my best.

Why should people vote for you?

I think we can reproduce some ideas becoming from the experience of running the Monthly User/Contributors meetings in Mexico. Those experiences are helping me to grow as a contributor and my skills in teamwork. I’m feeling than I can do good work in the Council.

What do you want to accomplish as a member of the Fedora Council?

My goal is to propose actions that help us increase the number of active collaborators, particularly in packaging, design, and D&I; this will have an impact (at least in theory) on our user base.
