Robyn Bergeron Stepping Down As Fedora Project Leader

Iíve been in the Fedora Project Leader role for a bit over two years now, and was the program manager for Fedora for nearly a year and a half before that; needless to say, Fedora has been my full time and lots of my other time job for a long time now. Being in this role certainly is humbling and daunting at times, and amazingly gratifying at others, but it has also afforded me an almost overwhelming opportunity to learn about anything and everything going on in open source outside the Fedora universe, with the hopes of bringing those people, projects, and ideas into our folds. Some of it is incredibly interesting, and some of it brings incredibly creative thinking into solving problems that we face in the technology space today ó and, like those before me, it has also led me inevitably into exploring new opportunities.

With Fedora 20 well behind us, and on the road ahead, it seems like a natural time to step aside and let new leadership take the reins. Frankly, I shouldnít even say ďthe road aheadĒ since weíre well-entrenched in the process of establishing the features and processes, and itís a rather busy time for us all in Fedora-land ó but this is precisely why make the transition into new leadership as smooth as possible for the Fedora Project community is so important. Itís a good time for change, and fresh ideas and leadership will be an asset to the community as we go forward, but I also want to make sure itís not going to distract us from all the very important things we have in the works.

Iíve informed the Fedora Project Board already of my intentions, and my friends, Red Hat management and family are all aware and supportive of my decision to move onwards. Red Hat engineering and management, as the employer of the FPL, will obviously be involved in the transition process, and the Fedora Board will continue to be advised and consulted during the process as well. While what it is *exactly* that Iím doing next is still to-be-determined, I will be sticking around to help with transition tasks, general FPL-edification, and generally ensure a smooth turnover into the New World, after the proverbial torch is passed.
