My name is Paulo Matias. I'm 19 years old, and I'm currently at the third year of a four-year Bachelor of Computational Physics course at University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
I'm a Linux user since 1998, when I started using Conectiva Linux. This was my main distribution until 2003, when I changed to Debian-based distributions. Then I switched to Gentoo at 2005. Finally, since about one year, Arch Linux has become my distribution of choice. I was very attracted by the lack of bureaucracy and by the warm and friendly community.
I currently mantain some packages at AUR, notably the VirtualBox PUEL edition packages and Open Sound System (OSS) related packages, among others. My packages are listed at http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?SeB=m&K=thotypous. I often contribute to packages not maintained by me. I had recently contributed to the iverilog, vmware-player-modules and qc-usb packages.
I was already experienced at packaging software for NetBSD, as a pkgsrc-wip project contributor. My packages at pkgsrc are listed at http://pkgsrc.se/bbmaint.php?maint=matias%7Ca%7Cdotbsd.org. I had packaged software there whose packages are currently maintained by others too, such as gnash and ghc.
I recently started to develop some projects directly related to Arch Linux, namely arch-sheriff and pkgbuildtools. The arch-sheriff project is security-related and was recently presented at Arch mailing lists by our friend Hugo Doria. The pkgbuildtools project is currently being planned, and will provide some tools inspired by pkgsrc pkgtools and infrastructure.
Hugo Doria has offered to be my sponsor as a Trusted User. I hope to bring more useful packages to community and to help managing AUR.
Currently, I sadly don't own any x86_64 capable machine.
I will be happy to answer any question.
O Paulo, i know very well this guy, he is very active with the brazilian community like dsa, hdoria, and even, they really do a great job.
I like to know that you people are encouraged to be TUs.
I will wait until the discussion period *officialy* starts to contribute with this thread.
P.S: Good to know that you like Ruby, we had many packages in community that were moved to unsupported recently, maybe you should applied before! ;] (I told the same to even btw!)
