Subject: [gentoo-dev] I'm looking for a mentor

1 Hi all,
2 My name is Kfir Lavi, I'm 36 years old, father of a gorgeous child ;)
3 and a Linux user for about 8 years (I don't count really ;-).
4 I'm a Linux BSP developer here in Israel.
5 I started from LFS, and after few weeks I had a Pentium 100Mhz loaded with
6 X...
7 I'm a Gentoo user for few years now, and I'm interested in embedded,
8 catalyst and stuff
9 related to day to day desktop. At home we are working just on Gentoo, no
10 other OS installed there.
11 I'm experienced in cluster environments to embedded environments. I have
12 worked with Perl, Python and Ruby.
13 I do prefer Bash for day to day usage. I also do C programming that relate
14 to Kernel stuff.
15 In the last few month i did a lot of work using Catalyst, crossdev and
16 "embedded" in general. I'm using
17 Portage facilities for my own work internal use. As part of that, I did some
18 work on public ebuilds.
19 As work get more complicated, I find myself in need of packages that are not
20 always
21 maintained as I need them.
22 As a start I would like to start maintaining dev-libs/ace, as we are using
23 it in our systems a lot.
24 I have emailed Daniel Black, the current maintainer of ACE, about changing
25 ownership, but
26 because I'm not a gentoo dev, we can't do it.
27 I'm currently in a battle of shifting major company to Gentoo from vxworks
28 and Windriver.
29 Not easy, and because of that, I have been learning a lot of Gentoo
30 internals. This really
31 opened up my view about Portage and it's abilities.
32 My aim for the future is bringing Catalyst and Portage to an OnDemand
33 embedded (crossdev) state (Which is a lot to ask, but we'll take it step by
34 step).
36 I would be happy if someone will find the time to mentor me to become a
37 Gentoo dev.
39 More info about me:
42 I'm a proxy maintainer of app-misc/utimer
43 - Testbed for network testing
45 Thanks,
