Hi ArchLinux community,
I like to apply as TU, sponsored by Lukas Fleischer (aka CryptoCrack),
since my passion and work for ArchLinux continues since half a decade
and I really would like to get more involved into development and
package maintaining.
My name is Jonas (my public key [1]), I'm 23 years old, computer science
student in Karlsruhe, Germany. I switched to Linux in school while
working voluntarily on a school server [2] and school internet cafe
together with a class mate in our free time. Hacking on fun projects
became on of my big hobbies and some of them are documented in my blog
[3]. I get a lot of inspiration and exchange in my local hacker space,
the Entropia e.V. [4] which is part of the CCC (Chaos Computer Club) [5]
but also at work as a network administrator at the architecture faculty
of my university.
I love ArchLinux, using it on my servers (with several ArchLinux vms)
and on my laptop, because it's simple, basic and fast. The wiki is also
one of my favorite places in the community, because all the
documentation is pragmatic and to the point. I constantly write new
how-to's or improve instructions on other pages [6]. In my opinion, a
well written Wiki/Doku, also for all the third-party software, is very
important and one reason why I don't want to use Debian anymore for my
I learned how to write clean and sometimes complex PKGBUILDs over time
and now maintaining up to 150 AUR packages [7]. Some of them are really
important to me (using them on my server or integrated them to my
projects) and I think also important to the community, so I would like
to put them into the community repository. For example: archivemount,
btar, dmtcp, etherpad-lite, freecad, gallery, gitlab, hlds, joomla,
opentracker, pyload, python-libtorrent-rasterbar, sslstrip, etc. For
other packages, I adopted them just to fix broken PKGBUILDs or I tried
to port non-supported software to ArchLinux like Zenoss, oVirt or Kolab
while working with their developers to improve ArchLinux support.
At least, here are some of my experimental projects you can look at:
p2pacman [8], pkgcheck [9], wikidict [10], carpc based on ArchLinux
For further questions, you can find me on #archlinux at freenode or just
ask them here on the mailinglist.
