People behind Debian: Enrico Zini

Interviews

Even though Enrico is not smiling on this picture, he’s one of the friendliest Debian person that I know. I always enjoy his presentations because he can’t refrain from inserting jokes or other funny tricks. Smile

That said he’s serious too, there’s lots of good stuff that he has developed over the years (starting with Debtags) and he has put a lot of effort in “reforming” the New Maintainer process. Read on to learn more about his various projects.

Raphael: Who are you?

Enrico: Hi, I’m Enrico Zini, a DD from Italy. I’m 35 and I work as a freelance Free Software developer. One of my historical roles in Debian is taking care of Debtags, but that is not all I do: my paid work led me to write and maintain some weather forecast related software in Debian, and recently I gained a Front Desk hat, and then a DAM hat.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
