   I'm 33 y.o. citizen of Russian Federation living at Saint-Petersburg. I
   work/live in IT for 15 years, mostly as system administrator. Looking for
   community I have start participating in local FIDOnet branch as node
   (2:5030/249) and adopted ideas of freedom and opennes. Later, I realized that
   there's software much more stable that MS-based-world, providing much more
   ways to acquire results, to explore technology etc (and suitable points of
   view). At last it all (well, pretty all) is based on voluntary efforts,
   "internally honest", and reflects my personal attitude, mostly opposite to
   the commercial mainstream and its obscure way. Surfing Linux-based
   distributions I have choose Debian project for its constitutional anarchic
   system and goal to remain free for all declared in its Social Contract. Also
   I like its non-retentive concept covering more that only Linux-based systems.

   Currently I advocate Debian GNU/Linux for several years, do
   bugreporting/patching, debianize software of interest.

   He maintains one package in Debian, proxycheck.

   Searching the web for him reveals some mails asking or contributing, not
   only on Debian, but also e.g. Samba-TNG or cpan.

2. Philosophy and Procedures

   Al demonstrated a fair understanding of Debian's Philosophy and Procedures.

3. Tasks and Skills
   Al is maintainer of proxycheck.  The package is present in the linux
   archive, and seem to be - as far as I could judge - in good shape.

   He also answered my questions regarding T&S.

   Preferred account name: clown
   Address to forward E-Mails to: alnikolov@narod.ru
