Alright, after much poking and prodding by various lobbying firms and special
interests groups and some thought given to it during a quick game of
Electroplankton, I've decided to cast my hat into the ring and run for a
foundation trustee position.
Quick rundown of the things I do in Gentoo include:
- Help manage the Gentoo/MIPS port as the MIPS Team Lead
- Provide a visible Gentoo presence (along with others) in
the linux-mips IRC channel (which has mostly debian people)
- Chip in on random Gentoo/SPARC related discussions
- Chip in on base-system, toolchain, and gcc-porting
oddities at random.
- Idle constantly in several Gentoo IRC channels
- Developed 'crossdev', the forerunner to the portage
- Trained four new MIPS devs, and currently in the process
of mentoring a 5th one.
My preferred goals for running for a foundation position are mainly for giving
the alt-arch groups (primarily sparc and mips, but others too) a voice in
things, as we often find ourselves overlooked or compared to inefficient
Some quick things about me:
- Been a developer for 2 years
- Residing in an insignificant region outside the DC
Metro area, which I might add, is ranked #3 in worst
traffic in the nation, and I drive in it.
- Owner of many SGI systems (Octane, 2 O2's, Indy,
Indigo2 R10K, Indigo2 R8K).
So vote for me today, and I guarantee I'll make your teeth up to 25% whiter!
