Short Biography


I have involved in open source since the late 1990s helping run, which hosted the Bugtraq security mailing list at the time. I taught myself programming and have contributions at and, for the past decade, . Since 2016, I have been the primary contributor and maintainer of lighttpd (

Over the past few years, I have been contributing to and would like to step into a large role in keeping lighttpd, and perhaps some of its dependencies, up to date in Debian. For security reasons, I believe that a web server .deb package -- and that of any internet-facing daemon -- is most secure and robust when actively maintained in close coordination with the upstream developers (me!).

Thank you!
