GroupBasedPolicy/PTL Elections Kilo Liberty candidate sumit

Sumit Naiksatam Candidacy Statement

Hi All,

I would like to announce my candidacy for the Group Based Policy (GBP) [1] project’s PTL position [2].

I have been involved with GBP for more than a year now. I was responsible for setting it up as a StackForge project across multiple repositories, and have been serving as the de facto lead. I have made contributions to the project in terms of design, implementation, and reviews [3].

My focus during the Kilo cycle has, and, will be to improve the quality of our code (reduce bug count, identify and remove obvious performance issues, clear technical debt), and most of all to gather feedback from users on the GBP Juno release. Based on this feedback, I would like to steer the project in the Liberty release towards better integration with other OpenStack components, and advanced features that will allow to comprehensively manage and automate policy enforcement across those components.

I have enjoyed working with each and every one of the GBP team members, and look forward to working with them in the formal capacity of a PTL. I am proud of what the team has achieved, and hope to facilitate its growth even further.

To summarize, I am very excited about this opportunity in playing a part in GBP’s mission to fully realize the intent-based policy-driven abstractions' model.

Best, Sumit Naiksatam. (IRC: SumitNaiksatam)
