|Status||Debian Maintainer since 2016-09-04|
I am contributor to the free software movement hoping to improve privacy and civil liberties in the digital space. FreedomBox, a pure blend of Debian, is my primary area of focus. In the past, I have contributed to Indian language computing, to a collaboration suite based on Thunderbird and in small ways, to various free software projects.
After the start of the FreedomBox by Eben Moglen, I found it to be clearly the solution to the many of the digital challenges we face. I resolved to contribute to it. Although it took me a while to join the project, I am now a significant contributor to the project and spend half my work time on it (while I spend remaining time doing independent consulting).
I intend to contribute to Debian by:
Uploading direct FreedomBox packages such as plinth and freedombox-setup.
Uploading supporting packages managed by freedombox-pkg-team.
Supporting FreedomBox packages after they enter stable.
Helping out with various Debian packages that are necessary for FreedomBox.
So far, I have worked on:
Major changes to freedombox-setup package to move its functions to Plinth with a Web UI, fix issues and cleanup.
Making freedombox-setup suitable for regular Debian users.
Making freedombox-setup and plinth upgradable from one version to next.
Initial work for packaging pagekite and submission of changes upstream. Help with later uploads.
Initial packaging and later uploads of django-stronghold.
Contributed small bits to other related projects such as vmdebootstrap and mod-gnutls.
Made significant contributions to cleaning up and adding content to the FreedomBox wiki (part of Debian wiki) and manual.
