2. Background

My first motivation to use free software was, more than ten years ago,
that I needed a text formatter. I did not want to pay for something
that could be found for free with better moral grounds and nicer
output. I had no computer on my own, and LaTeX files were more
portable than Word across friends's operating systems.

Once I had my own computer, I found that learning system
administration was more interesting than upgrading antiviruses, so I
used Red Hat. Then I discovered Debian, preferred its social intents,
and never had a reason to quit since. I started doing some
translations. Now, I am more interested in programming and packaging.
My main focus is the Ada programming language.

I have been working on the following packages for roughly 2 years.
 music123 (ex RFA, co-maintainer, Ada executable)
 gnat-gps (RFH, co-maintainer, Ada executable)
 libtexttools (ex RFH, maintainer, Ada and C library)
 oolite (it started with an RC bug, maintainer, gnustep game)
 libgmpada (upstream author and maintainer, Ada and C library)
 libgtkada (co-maintainer, Ada and C library)
 libncursesada (never packaged before, maintainer, Ada and C library)
 dh-ada-library (new native package, Ada debhelper extension).

Here are some significant patches I have contributed to:
 639075 oolite: FTBFS: src/Core/Scripting/OOJavaScriptEngine.m:886:2: error: 
too few arguments to function 'INTERNED_STRING_TO_JSID'
 643972 oolite FTBFS on kfreebsd-amd64: 
src/Core/Scripting/OOJavaScriptEngine.m:307:40: error: 'JSOPTION_ANONFUNFIX' 
undeclared (first use in this function)
 557894 libtexttools: FTBFS on kfreebsd-*: undefined SIGPWR
 559084 libgmpada FTBFS [hppa] - *** [test] Segmentation fault
 634273 oolite: FTBFS on Ubuntu ARM
