My contributions to the community have radically changed as of late. Due to my good fortune in being able to go to debconf2 (see my write up about it ) I decided to devote my work on the open source community to debian.

Since then, I've created two debian packages for inclusion in debian, imapfilter and limewire. imapfilter is already in the archive, but limewire is still pending.

I also have decided to become a debian developer, and am almost completely done with the applications process.

I also wrote a gtk frontend for the new debian installer.

I'm tremendously happy about working with Debian, and I couldn't have gotten as involved as I have without the help I got from Mako, Tolleff, and Joerg.

I plan to continue improving the debian-installer and package a number of gpl truetype fonts for inclusion in main. Im' currently discussing licensing issues with a number of font authors.
