"Earlier this year, former Fedora Project Leader Paul Frields announced he'd be stepping down from the post and that Fedora and Red Hat were searching for a new project leader. At the end of June, Frields announced that Jared Smith would be taking up the position. Since this is a pretty important job in our community, we thought it'd be a good idea to talk with Smith and learn more about him and his plans for Fedora.

"Linux.com: First, congratulations on your selection as the next Fedora Project Leader (FPL)! When does your tenure officially begin? And, what will your first few weeks entail, if you know?

"Jared Smith: My tenure began on July 12th. My first couple of weeks have involved traveling to the FUDCon conference in Santiago, Chile and the FISL conference in Porto Alegre, Brazil. As you probably already know, FUDCon is the Fedora Users and Developers Conference. FUDCon is a mixture of barcamp-style training sessions, as well as a chance to further the development of Fedora in some group development sessions. The FISL conference is also a great event, with literally thousands of attendees."
