Summary for Loic Dachary <email@example.com> Identity -------- Loic's key is signed by several Debian maintainers. pub 1024D/497A176D 2001-02-03 Loic Dachary (OuoU) <firstname.lastname@example.org> sig! 68FD549F 2001-07-04 Martin Michlmayr <email@example.com> sig! 9D735B4F 2001-06-11 Igor Genibel <firstname.lastname@example.org> sig! 4B729625 2001-07-04 Peter Van Eynde <email@example.com> Background ---------- Loic is the vice president of FSF Europe and developer of savannah.gnu.org, GNU's "central point for development, distribution and maintainance of Free Software". Loic is upstream of many packages which are already in Debian; he wants to assist those maintainers, and also maintain packages himself (currently Text::Unaccent). Loic is a great Free Software advocate; more information can be found at http://www.dachary.org/loic and http://www.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=01/05/15/1543252. For the latter, please keep in mind, "Although I find the article well writen I regret deeply that it clasifies me as an "Open Source People". I belong to the Free Software movement, not to the Open Source movement." Philosophy & Procedures ----------------------- Loic understands Debian's philosophy and agrees with it. As an important FSF member, he better should. ;-) Tasks & Skills -------------- Loic packaged Text::Unaccent. Gergely Nagy did the Tasks&Skills test and found only minor issues in the package. Igor Genibel <firstname.lastname@example.org> helped getting Loic hooked on Debian. He writes: [ ... ] > For learning the technical part, he decided to install savannah with a > debian GNU/linux system. He also installed the fsf france machine with my > help (france.sfseurope.org).
