Hi everyone,

New in this TC election round, we have a few days between nominations
and actual voting to ask questions and get to know the candidates a bit
better. I'd like to kick off this new "campaigning period" with a basic
question on available time and top priority.

All the candidates are top community members with a lot of
responsibilities on their shoulders already. My experience tells me that
it is easy to overestimate the time we can dedicate to Technical
Committee matters, and how much we can push and get done in six months
or one year. At the same time, our most efficient way to make progress
is always when someone "owns" a particular initiative and pushes it
through the governance process.

So my question is the following: if elected, how much time do you think
you'll be able to dedicate to Technical Committee affairs (reviewing
proposed changes and pushing your own) ?

I consider my role in the TC to be half of my work in the community. The other
half is covered by my other technical contributions. My reviews and proposed
changes on the Technical Committee tasks are as "important" (if not more,
sometimes) as my contributions to other tasks.

If there was ONE thing, one
initiative, one change you will actively push in the six months between
this election round and the next, what would it be ?

One thing I'd love to see happening more is to have more bridges built between
the OpenStack community and other cloud communities like CNCF. I truly believe
there's lots we can learn from each other and share. However, for us to be able
to create stable, solid, bridges, we need to think of ourselves as a single
community composed by multiple bricks. These bricks can be used as a group or
individually but they definitely cooperate between them. Make OpenStack more

So, to answer your question directly, I'd choose to focus on improving the
OpenStack community by taking the time to check where we are, what we are, where
we are headed, how we can there. Documenting this process, the OpenStack culture
and making sure the community is in a healthy state team/project wise. I think
this would make our existing interactions with other communities better and
it'll also help creating new ones.
