Short Biography

User of Free and Open Source software since 2000 when I became a user and contributor to the Crystal Space SDK project, on the Windows side. I then became fascinated with the GNU Linux and began to install it and use it more and more. Currently I run no non GNU Linux systems and over the years I have settled using Debian, Fedora and RHEL plus its rebuilds such as CentOS and Alma Linux.

I have been a user and contributor over the years in minor ways, with user help, bug reports and bug fixes. In the last couple of years I have taken on packages. Currently I maintain:

On debian as a sponsored maintainer: libfilezilla, filezilla and rednotebook.

On Fedora and EPEL as full access maintainer: Remmina, libfreenect and gnome-maps.

Languages: Assembler, C, C++ and Python.

Interests: Free and Open Source, Community Involvement, Robotics and Automotive.
