Re: [hudson-dev] [Hudson-Dev] Leadership role for Hudson Plugins


Thanks for clarifying that. We don't want another "chuck" from Australian Yahoo surfacing from no where and claiming we have a back door dealing to decide on the leadership role :-) .

First and foremost, thank you for the vote of confidence :-) I am
certainly looking forward to help build up the community and make
Hudson easier to work with in complex scenarios

Secondly and for formality's sake: All my Hudson related activities
are done on personal time, and should not be taken as a indication
that Maersk in any way endorses or supports Hudson. I know neither
Winston nor I have suggested otherwise, but I just needed to state it
explicitly in case someone new stumbles on this mail thread.

Just to clarify my day job a bit anyways, I currently sit in the
Maersk Line part of the company in the "Application Deployment
Life-cycle Team" as Technical Lead for continuous integration and
deployment for our new SOA based solutions. The key thing here is that
I am a hand-on lead not a hands-off manager :-)

Hudson CI  server has two prominent areas of development

- Hudson Core or platform
- Hudson plugin Eco system

The Hudson core platform being a Technology project at Eclipse Foundation,
it is fully governed  by Eclipse process.

On the other hand Hudson Plugin ecosystem is vastly open. At the beginning
of the year we had only three or four plugins (not counting 400+ plugins
that are still compatible from the pre-split era). But now it has 40+ active
plugins with over 25 authors. Hudson only plugin eco-system is growing and
in need of strong leaders.

In the Jan 23rd governance meeting I nominated Henrik Lynggaard for that
leadership role. The nomination was accepted and Henrik also gracefully
accepted to volunteer for that role.

Few of the main reasons  I proposed Henrik for the leadership role are

Foremost, he is not an Oracle employee :-)   . He works for Maersk, a Danish
He has proposed and developed several plugins and tools for Hudson and very
active in the community forum.
Being a technical lead for continuous integration and deployment at Maersk,
he deals with CI system, agile technologies and ALM  processes on day to day
basis. His day job gives him better opportunity to understand the Hudson
plugins requirements, thus a suitable candidate for the role.

Looking forward to work with Henrik  to drive Hudson a successful product.
