Short Biography

I came to Debian in early 2000 from Slackware because I needed a distribution that supported in-place upgrades, and I've been running Debian ever since. In dealing with several bugs I found I had increasing interest in the packaging side of things, and also found that this knowledge was necessary if I wanted at least one particular package to continue to function as expected. In 2014 I took over as the maintainer for the 'mumble' package and have been doing uploads through a DD sponsor since. I've also helped convert several packages from using individual debhelper calls to the more dh in debian/rules, including the ham radi packages 'chirp' and 'aprx'.

At present my main goal in filing for DM is to be able to upload packages I maintain to Debian directly rather than having to go through a sponsor, and I'm likewise slowly working towards becoming a full Debian Developer.
