Subject: [cncf-toc] Nomination of Ed Warnicke for as a TAG Network Co-Chair

Dear TAG Network Liaisons, Liz Rice and Dave Zolotusky, and all TOC members:


TAG Network has an open need for a third co-chair. As the presiding co-chairs of TAG Network, Ken Owens and I have identified a longstanding member of TAG Network both befitting of and willing to assume this role: Ed Warnicke. We are delighted that Ed is willing to increase his stewardship of TAG Network’s ongoing and forthcoming initiatives.


Here is a brief bio:


Ed Warnicke is a Distinguished Engineer at Cisco Systems. He has been working for nearly two decades in many areas of networking and Open Source. Ed is currently the TSC Chair, and a founder of and active contributor to the Network Service Mesh project. Ed has a masters in Physics (String Theory) from Rutgers University.


Among other noteworthy activities, Warnicke is on the TAC at LFN and the TAC at LFPH. He is a founding TSC member at OpenDaylight, is consistently in the top 60 individuals (#47 currently) on devstat for most PRs opened on CNCF projects, and is formerly a Wireshark maintainer.





Please consider our nomination of Ed Warnicke as a TAG Network co-chair. As you do, know that Ed’s addition will bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the group as well as increase the bandwidth for the TAG to liaise with other groups.


Please reply to this email to vote. As always, the CNCF encourages non-binding votes from the community, along with the required votes of TOC members.
