I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova,Quantum,Openstack-ci,DevStack,Release
I am the current OpenStack Networking PTL. I believe OpenStack is ready to continue maturing as a project. The work happening in Kilo around paying down technical debt, refactoring, and improving stability is a testament to this. My biggest contirbution to OpenStack's success to date has been succesfully leading the Networking project through the Juno release, and being given the chance to do the same during Kilo.
This would be my first experience working with a non profit. I am very excited about the chance to work with other community members in this capacity!
The board should continue to guide OpenStack, providing watch as the project continues to grow and evolve. Much like the TSC guides OpenStack from a technical perspective, I believe the board should continue to guide it from a marketing and mangement perspective.
Continuing to help enable users and operators, and continuing to grow the ecosystem.
