GNOME’s new release manager

Hearty congratulations to Frédéric Péters on his new role as the head of the GNOME Release Team!

I had the pleasure of meeting Fred during the GNOME.Asia Hackfest and Conference. We had some interesting conversations, he was always eager to share his thoughts on just about everything, from his beginnings in Free Software to his love for Debian.

Behind the colours, Fred could well be working on the next Gnome Commit Digest.

The only time he got flustered, I remember, was when I asked him if he was finally satisfied with the look of his laptop, covered in stickers as it was. And while he didn’t say so himself, I do recall interpreting the look on his face as “Oh, why couldn’t have I gone for a bigger screen! At least then I’d have more space for some more wonderful stickers!”

Fred takes over from Vincent Untz, who helmed the evolution of the release team’s role from GNOME 2 to GNOME 3 and has seen off the release of GNOME 3.0 to wide acclaim!
