Short Biography

Hi all,

I'm living in Berlin, Germany, and using Debian since ~ 11 years by now. Most of the time "just" as a user and sysadmin (which feeds me), but wanted to "give something back" since quite some time, that is, doing more than just writing and / or answering bug reports.

I felt quite sad after schleuder, a gpg enabled mailing list, was removed from Debian, and so I stepped up to take over this task in 2016. Since then I've did this and took over maintenance of some related packages as well [1].

I believe that Debian fills a quite important role in the free/libre software world, and I would like to join the project and invest what I'm able to!

Thanks and all the best, Georg
