Hello Arch Linux community, [...] My main focus is on system administration, but I do have an attitude to programming. A number of open source projects includes changes by me, some just being bug fixes, some introducing new features. I do not want to bore you, so I will not list them here. [...]
While listing every single project you contributed to might be boring, knowing that you are willing to contribute to upstream projects is an important point.
Sure. This is kind of laziness... Every patch committed upstream does not steal our time maintaining the software downstream. :-P
I came across Christian's name on a lot of Open Source projects I am following; he contributed to archiso, cgit, OpenSSH, pacman and zsh. He submitted patches to Git to make the test suite pass with GnuPG 2.1 and we currently use those patches in our git package. I think he is knowledgeable and would be a good addition to our team.
Thanks for the compliments!
Christian, glad to see you apply!
The pleasure is all mine.
