Short Biography

I'm interested in extending the usefulness of Debian as a software development platform; my personal favourite use case. The trustfulness, quality and freshness are important to me. Lowering the barrier for useful contributions to Debian itself is also something I am interested in addressing.

I've been contributing to the QA effort, mostly through the Reproducible Builds project, for multiple years. I've attended Debian events including the recent Reproducible Builds summit.

I'm a member of the pkg-java team, and have been involved in running partial archive rebuilds for new Java releases, and fixing packages with those issues. Currently there's over 100 open issues, raised by me as *, if anyone wants to fix them.
