Currently, my main contribution to free software is as a debian developer. You can see my debian home page here:
I maintain two packages, limewire and imapfilter, but my main work is on the debian-installer project. I have written a gtk frontend for d-i, and have been working with a few people for a number of months to create packages for d-i to allow it to use directfb-gtk+.
I also work at Lindows.com and continually work to improve our relationship with the open source community, and work to improve our processes so that we can contribute more and more frequently.
Nowadays at Lindows.com, I work mostly on XFree86, KDE and our hardware detector. I've contributed patches to debian's XFree86 packages for the intel i845 driver, and to KDE.
Here's my original bio:
My main contribution to free software has been working on the Wine project and advocating/coordinating commercial linux projects.
Currently, I'm leading the Wine project at Lindows.com. This involves writing code and submitting my patches, coordinating and working with other Wine developers, and testing wine.
I was the Lead Engineer of the Linux port of Canvas7, from Deneba software (www.deneba.com). While Canvas wasn't open source, both I and my team of developers (Michael Kowalski, Mario Solares, Fawad Khan, Phil Landman) worked on winelib extensively in order to make Canvas work. We contributed most of our changes back to the main wine tree.
My contributions to the community have radically changed as of late. Due to my good fortune in being able to go to debconf2 (see my write up about it ) I decided to devote my work on the open source community to debian.
Since then, I've created two debian packages for inclusion in debian, imapfilter and limewire. imapfilter is already in the archive, but limewire is still pending.
I also have decided to become a debian developer, and am almost completely done with the applications process.
I also wrote a gtk frontend for the new debian installer.
I'm tremendously happy about working with Debian, and I couldn't have gotten as involved as I have without the help I got from Mako, Tolleff, and Joerg.
I plan to continue improving the debian-installer and package a number of gpl truetype fonts for inclusion in main. Im' currently discussing licensing issues with a number of font authors.
