Tux Machines (TM)-specific
How did you end up using Debian and becoming a DD?
I have been a Free Software user for a very long time — In the beginning, without even noticing.
Around 1983, when I was six or seven years old, I started going with my father (a physicist) to the University on friday nights. He taught me the basics of TeX and Emacs; we used it at a Foonly F2 machine. This computer had the first TeX installation outside Stanford. So, yes, I am the proud user of a piece of history.
How are you currently involved in the Debian project?
My main affiliation is with the pkg-perl and pkg-ruby-extras groups, although my activity has declined in both due to real-life constraints - But I'm always trying to step back in and get back to speed with both. Package-wise, besides this, I am maintaining the Cherokee webserver and few other minor packages.
