Since the beginning of the CDF, Oleg has been a dedicated community member. He has been an active Jenkins contributor for the better part of a decade. He is a member of both the CDF and Jenkins Board, leads the Google Summer of Code, hosts events, writes articles, promotes all things Jenkins on social media, contributes code… The list goes on and on. Last year, he also led the Jenkins Graduation process, making Jenkins the first graduated CDF project.
“I am honored to be elected as a chair of the Continuous Delivery Foundation Technical Oversight Committee! The foundation and its TOC are a great venue for cross-project and cross-company collaboration. It is instrumental for building the next-generation open source CI & CD ecosystem that would be focused on end users and interoperability between components.
“In this role, I will be facilitating discussions and decision making in the CDF, and collaboration between its member projects and companies. I will help all the projects to grow their communities and improve governance processes. I will also facilitate collaboration with CDF end users, and other open software and hardware organizations, e.g. The Linux Foundation, CNCF, RISC-V International, Inclusive Naming Initiative, TODO Group, InnerSource Commons, OpenSSF, Open Source Design, etc. There are a lot of opportunities, and I am looking forward to contributing in this role.
“I would also like to thank Dan Lorenc for leading the CDF TOC over the last year and for his leadership and for coordinating so many decisions in the committee; I have big shoes to fill. I would also like to thank Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Tracy Miranda, and all founding members for making this foundation possible.”
