Harald Hoyer

Harald Hoyer joined the Linux community in 1996.

His first kernel patch was the module ip_masq_quake in 1997, followed by boot support for md raid devices. He joined Red Hat in July of 1999, working on projects ranging from udev, network daemons and CD recording packages to creating configuration tools, extending smolt, writing python interfaces and improving boot time reduction. Recently he stepped up to develop a mkinitrd/nash replacement for Fedora 12, which is called Dracut.
