Description of Job Role

The Tungsten Fabric Community Release Manager guides the Project to the timely delivery of regular software releases, follow-on stable releases, and manage any ad-hoc releases as required. The Release Manager works directly with the community to formulate a release plan (currently under development) from inception through approval by the TSC. Once approved, the Release Manager then guides the Tungsten Fabric development community through the process and procedures needed to execute against that plan. A passion for release planning, cross-project coordination, automation, and release delivery, as well as the ability to effectively partner with contributors from around the globe, are required to be effective in this position. The term of this role will last for 1 year and there will be no restrictions on the number of terms served.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Work with the TF TSC, Project Technical Leads (PTLs), and Subcommittee Chairs to create and evolve the TF release process.
  • Develop, Document, and maintain release automation tools and tracking artifacts as needed.
  • Coordinate the cross-project release cycle, including intermediate milestones and release candidates, final releases, stable, and security updates.
  • Regularly communicate the status of the release to PTLs, the TSC, the LF, and the community at large.
  • Help identify release-blocking issues to keep the release process on schedule.
  • Deliver timely release artifacts (executable(s), documentation, testing output, etc.).
  • Ensure release continuity through documentation of processes and technologies as well as the delegation of tasks.

Information on Candidates


Name: Szymon Krasuski

Short Biography: I am currently Software Engineer at CodiLime. For over 2.5 year I've been working with Tungsten Fabric. First developing SDWAN/multicloud with deployed TF on the top of that. There I had opportunity to learn  how Tungsten Fabric cooperates with all three major cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure) and all nuances of TF depending on environment, operating system et al.

Afterward, I was developing for almost a year TF operator (known as contrail-operator at that time) for Openshift 4.x deployments.
There I was one of key engineers in development of vRouter and Kubemanager part to support multiple business scenarios (like standard CNI usage of TF, a well as Nested Deployment mode where Openstack together with Openshift are involved). 

Currently, as TF Operator was officially released to Linux Foundation, I actively contribute writing documentation for TF Operator, but also writing code to make TF Operator even better (all in all I'm probably one of a few that knows all the nuances and secrets of this code). I'm eager to work with the community to make it easier and intuitive for others to use Tungsten Fabric.
I also actively take part in the community meetings, slack discussions or giving presentations at LFN events.

I also wrote multiple blog posts about different aspects of Tungsten Fabric published on CodiLime's website: https://codilime.com/blog/
