Short Biography

I am a mechanical engineer from Italy. I began using GNU/Linux in 1999 with RedHat Linux, but switched over to Debian in 2002, after the release of woody.

My first external contributions to the Debian Project date back to the year 2004, when I began reporting bugs and sending patches through the Debian BTS. I have also been a regular debian-legal mailing list participant since then, contributing several license analyses and software freeness assessments over the years.

In 2008 I sent patches for the apt-listbugs package; I adopted the package in 2009, at first as a co-maintainer. I have been its sole maintainer since 2013.
