The great number of developers worldwide give this broad spectrum of applications. I'd like to make this still a bit broader and, of course, more stable, e.g. see my bug report http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=3D164189 My computer history started with a german Apple II clone in ca. 1983 (with 16k expansion, CP/M and UCSD Pascal). Next step was a no-name (Taiwan) '386 clone (just because i couldn't affort a Macintosh..). On this PC i first used MS-DOS (relativly stable and straight-forward). Getting more of RAM (i think it was 4MB), unused with DOS, i used OS/2 (1.2, 1.3 and Warp 3) for some time. On the University i got in touch with Unix, so i "leaned" a Interactive Unix/386 from our Admin, later i bought Coherent Unix. When Linux became useable for C development, i switched over (that was kernel 0.99pl11, in 1994, right?). Now we have a company (see http://www.software-manufaktur.de/) where we program PC-based automation systems, using QNX for hard realtime and (RTAI-) Linux for "soft"/no realtime. Our office runs completely Micro$oft free. <<<<<< His Advocate, email@example.com, writes >>>>>> This man has a very long experience with unix/linux in general, a lot of technical inside knowledge on the matter and is also personally known by me as a ferocious advocat of unix and open-source systems. I sincerely recommend this man. <<<<<< 2. Philosophy and Procedures ----------------------------- Edelhard has a good understanding of Debians Philosophy and Procedures. He answered well my questions about Social Contract, DFSG, BTS etc.. He clearly understands and agrees with the Debian Social Contract. 3. Tasks and Skills ------------------- Edelhard is maintaining an unofficial Debian package of larswm. This package is currently maintained in the Debian distribution by the QA group. I'm sure that Edelhard will want to adopt it. Edelhard also sent me a Debian package for vifm. There was a minor problem with the package that he figured out with a little prompting and he quickly and completely corrected. He also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems.
