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, first through a DD sponsor and then as a DM since 2015. I've also helped convert several packages from using individual debhelper calls to the more dh in debian/rules and occasionally helping other contributors in Debian with packaging work.

I am now starting the process towards formally becoming a Debian Developer.
