Why do you want to be a member of FESCo and how do you expect to help steer the direction of Fedora?

I want to be a member of FESCo to improve my skillset and help the community even more. Ensuring the releases are done on time and everyone has a chance to develop packages for and test releases.

How do you currently contribute to Fedora? How does that contribution benefit the community?

I do pre-release testing on the wiki and submit results, I vote on blockerbugs, attend some Fedora meetings and sometimes edit the wiki.

Fedora ELN brings RHEL engineering more closely into Fedora. How do you feel we should balance RHEL engineering with the community with ELN building from Fedora?

I feel we should try and combine the two efforts and encourage better communication between the groups.

What are your thoughts on Fedora ELN and what are your suggestions in improving it?

Fedora ELN is a good project that contributes to Red Hat Enterprise development I don’t really have any suggestions to improve it.

What else should community members know about you or your positions?

I am currently a HND Student studying Computing at Nescot College.
