Here goes my introduction then:

Hi, I'm Nicolas Dandrimont (alioth account dandrimont-guest). I'm a
French guy who just dropped out of a PhD and took on a job as a
Linux sysadmin in a "grande école"[1].

I have been a free software enthusiast for more than 10 years now, and I
have been involved with the Debian project more specifically since 2009
when I started packaging ramond, an IPv6 monitoring daemon. Since then,
my interests have hopped from OCaml (I have been using some OCaml tools
for a robotics project — you don't want to know[2]), to Python[3] to
Java (RepRap-related stuff too[4]) to debexpo (the software that runs
mentors.d.n[5]). Thanks to the OCaml team, I became a DM in 2011.

Some years ago, I learnt Perl and built some stuff with it, one of my
most impressive achievements being a website that would render a LaTeX
equation dynamically, written in Mason. (The scariest part of this is
that I had to chroot a LaTeX installation by hand, as the server was
running OpenBSD and I didn't want to disable the chrooting of
apache... anyway.). More recently, I became involved with Slic3r[6], and
got granted commit rights as an incentive to submit more patches (I hope
I will be up to it). Hence my will to package it, as the user base is
growing and the CPAN build-dependency tree is a bit deep and scares

I'd be glad to join the pkg-perl team to help achieve this, and, time
and skill permitting, to help out elsewhere if needed!
