Interview with Kevin Fenzi

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

I wish to continue to serve the fedora community on FESCo to provide history and help make today’s decisions based on yesterdays learning.

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

I currently am lucky to be employed by Red Hat working full time on Fedora Infrastructure. But outside of that ‘day job’ I try and do as many things as I can to help the fedora community: Maintaining packages, providing feedback on plans or ideas, doing release engineering tasks (often in non ‘work’ times).

How do you handle disagreements when working as part of a team?

I try and reach consensus until it becomes clear thats not possible. However, it almost always is possible, you just need to look at things from other perspectives and consider what solution would work for everyone. This is not foolproof, but helps to handle disagreements when they happen.

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

I’m happy to talk to anyone from the community anytime about fedora items. Feel free to contact me on matrix or irc or email. I’m human and make mistakes, but I like to think I learn from them and do better over time. 🙂
