New Linux team member at CERN

Hello all,

My name is Ben Morrice and I wanted to introduce myself to this list.
I have recently started work at CERN, working in the Linux team. I will be maintaining our internal CERN CentOS distribution and I look forward to contributing anything that I can back to the CentOS project.

I am known as 'figless' on freenode.

Hope to work with you soon!

Cheers,

Ben Morrice

See you around!

To those at CERN. Thank you for back porting updates for el5. I hate to
admit that I've had to maintain rhel5 boxes. But I had to. No options that
were under a million dollars.

Scientific Linux 8, and effort will be focused on or integrated with
CentOS? Is this part of that shift?

Cool. I used to be an active user of Scientific Linux. I'm glad to see
the effort more directly shared.
