== Contributions ==

As the Ubuntu Release Manager, I work with the release team to manage the Ubuntu development and long term support releases. Some of the areas I'm responsible for are:
 * holding weekly release meetings to get status across teams and highlight issues for the approaching milestones
 * coordinate pulling together the release notes for each of the milestones and final releases
 * review key open bugs to determine impact to release and specific milestones
 * work with release team to update and maintain release process pages
 * work with release team to manage image building and publishing
 * host sessions at UDS/rally's to deal with release issues ( post-release process analysis, licensing and copyrights, metric improvements, etc.)

Recent impacts:
 * worked with launchpad team to get o-series and p-series opened up for targeting future releases bugs/features to enable better planning
 * started bi-weekly SRU and LTS release meetings to get cross functional discussion as work out bi-weekly kernel SRU process intersecting with development release.
 * reworked release notes framework for 10.10, and technical overview notes for milestone releases.

On the community side:
 * co-chair of the [[http://www.spdx.org|SPDX working group]], sponsored by [[http://www.fossbazaar.org|FOSSbazaar]] and the [[http://www.linuxfoundation.org|Linux Foundation]] as part of their open compliance program. The purpose of this group is to come up with a standard way to exchange copyright and licensing information that can be shared among software supply chain providers. Some of this has been modeled after the DEP-5 approach, but extends beyond what is called for in DEP-5.
 * participant in project Harmony effort to standardize contributor agreements.
