Pat Riehecky - usually known as 'jcpunk'
Officially Pat began working with the CentOS Community when Fermilab decided to use CentOS 8 as its EL8 base platform.
He has been active in various Linux/Unix clubs going back to 2001 where he was a member of the Unix Hobbyists And Coders Club meeting at both IWU and ISU.
In 2011 he joined the Scientific Linux team at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory where he has acted as Release Manager and informal collaborator with various members of the CentOS Project. Scientific Linux and CentOS have common goals and common problems, so this is a natural fit. He has also provided packages and feedback to EPEL and ELRepo.
Pat is a passionate believer in Open Source software and contributes to a number of projects.
