Short Biography

Most of my contributions to Debian have been related to FreedomBox. In fact I started using Debian, around 2012, so that I could use and contribute to FreedomBox. For me, this project offers a way to regain some control over our online interactions, rather than being bound by corporate decisions.

Since 2015, I have been co-maintaining the plinth and freedombox-setup packages with freedombox-pkg-team. I have also reported bugs and contributed patches for related network services and web apps packages. Through this work I have come to appreciate Debian's focus on volunteer contributions and do-ocracy.

My goals are the following: - Package web apps which would be suitable for Debian, but are currently missing. - Improve existing packages for simple configuration and automated setup. - Rely more on Debian-hosted infrastructure for FreedomBox.
