| I'm 24, live in Switzerland where I work as a software developer and
| sysadmin. I had my fist encounter with GNU/Linux in 1996 but it took
| another 3 years until I really switched to Linux.
| Since then, ??I tried to convince everyone to use Linux (at least on
| their servers) and was successful most of the times.
| 3 years ago a friend of mine gave me a demo of Debian's apt-get package
| manager and I was really impressed. It solved the nasty problem of
| updating production servers without downtime. Before Debian, we always
| installed a new machine and migrated the services.
| Within a year almost all servers were migrated to Debian GNU/Linux and
| it was declared our official internal Linux distribution.
| Involvment in Debian:
| Currently I do have 2 packages in the Debian archive. mnogosearch,
| which I took over from Craig Small (seeS) and DRBD, wich I'm currently
| co-maintaing with Cyril Bouthors (The current maintainer David Krovic
| is not active anymore, but he's still listed as maintainer)
| Why do I want to be a DD?
| Well, packaging stuff is definitely possible even if you're not a DD,
| but it is a real pain.
| for example, if there's just a small bug to fix, I can't just upload a
| a new version.
