Who I am

I'm Ian May and I joined Canonical in April of 2020. I'm a member of the Kernel Stable Team and my main responsibilities are related to the kernel SRU process.

My Ubuntu story

Back in 2006 while at University my parents gave me their old computer. I decided this would be a good opportunity to dive into Linux. From my perspective Ubuntu had the most involved user base and a professional feeling distribution so I grabbed a copy of Dapper Drake and have been hooked ever since. My development experience has been focused towards out of tree drivers, specifically targeting data protection at the FS and block I/O layers.

My involvement

Since joining the Stable Kernel Team I've been able to develop a much better understanding of the kernel release process. I've been able to help in preparing a variety of different kernels. I've also been fortunate enough to get a chance to dive into the PCI layer and am hoping I eventually will be able to contribute to future advancements with PCI.

Upload Rights

I'm requesting upload rights for the kernel package set for all active series, which includes all the "linux*" packages.

Plans for the future

I still have so much to learn from the team here at Canonical. I want to continue developing my understanding of the entire SRU process.
