With immediate effect, Jule Anger takes over the release management in the international team of the open source software Samba.
The previous release manager Karolin Seeger joins Red Hat on October 1st 2021. She will hand over Samba team's release management to Jule Anger, who has been working as a developer in SerNet's Samba department for 2 years. At the same time Jule Anger officially becomes a member of the international Samba core team. The release management for Samba will thus continue to be sponsored by SerNet after the departure of Karolin Seeger.
Karolin's move also brings other changes: Ralph Böhme succeeds her as team leader of the Samba department at SerNet. He moved to SerNet and the Samba team in 2013 with the foreseeable end of Netatalk, the software he mainly supported for coupling Linux and macOS via AFP. Commenting on the arrival of Jule Anger, he says: "With Jule, we have a highly motivated colleague in our team and are very pleased that she will contribute to the Samba project on an international level with a breath of fresh air."
