Status Debian Developer, uploading since 2019-12-19

Short Biography

I am applying to change my status in Debian to Debian Developer, uploading. I have been a Debian Maintainer and Contributor for a few years [1] and I have enjoyed that quite a bit. I have been maintaining the packages for WorldForge [2], a project I work on upstream as well. I currently maintain ten of those packages in Debian including one for which I was able to resolve a licensing issue with upstream to allow packaging. I'd like to eventually help with other things as well, potentially in the scientific or engineering areas.

About me: I've been administering from one to a dozen GNU/Linux systems since Slackware back in late 1994. I switched over to Debian sometime in 1995. I watched from the sidelines for quite a while but I've been trying to give back a bit more over the past few years. I'd like to continue to do more. My programming skills aren't great but they've been improving as I've done more packaging work. I also have a good bit of experience with the technical side of website design (HTML/CSS/PHP/SQL/JavaScript) and with programming engineering models (MATLAB/GNU Octave/et al.).

Thank you for your consideration!
