another unlurk here. I subscribed last week, after hearing mako and
micah and matt tell me of this list. that was after i mentioned to them
how few women seemed to have voted in the recent plebiscite on the sarge
what i would hope to get, from those on this list, and Debian developers
in general: help in becoming a Debian developer: packaging, etc; and
other things to learn to be able to contribute.
what i can give: some assistance, based on my experience. I've been
working on indymedia for four and a half years, sometime-helping with
riseup.net, worked for 5 years doing sysadmin for seattle community
network( scn.org). i started programming (omygawd) 30 years ago, but am
very much out of practice. currently my employment involves managing a
group of gibraltar firewalls (www.gibraltar.at), a couple dozen or more
Debian-based servers, et al.
