Thanks David!

A bit of an introduction; I'm living in the Netherlands in a place called Houten. I've been
working in IT for more than two decades. I started my career at a small development firm,
but switched to an ISP startup soon after. As one of the few technical people in that company
my job was to build the ISP. Everything from managing the modems to setting up the mail servers.
At that time i also got involved with OpenSource and decided to participate when possible.
Nowadays i work for a Mission Critical Outsourcing company where we rely heavily on OpenSource
software and we actively encourage our people to contribute to OpenSource projects. 

Recently i got involved with CloudStack as we are building a cloud offering. When we also
started working with Nicira we wanted integration between CloudStack and Nicira Nvp. I took
the challenge of building support for Nicira Nvp into CloudStack. While working on this i
managed to track down several bugs and before i realized what was happening i was invited
to become a committer.

For now my main focus will be to further the integration with Nicira Nvp solutions and making
sure it is supported with as much hypervisors as possible. I'm working closely with the nice
folks at Nicira to make this happen. Bug finding and testing is my second focus :-)

The Podling Project Management Committee (PPMC) for Apache CloudStack has asked Hugo Trippaers
to become a committer and we are pleased to announce that they have accepted.

Being a committer enables easier contribution to the project since there is no need to go
via the patch submission process. This should enable better productivity.

Please join me in congratulating Hugo,

on behalf of the CloudStack PPMC
