1 Good day everyone!
3 It is my pleasure to announce the latest addition to our family.
5 Toralf Förster is joining us from Hamburg, Germany.
6 I strongly believe that lots of people already know him as the person who works on tinderbox,
7 and he will continue work in his new status!
9 Here is how he describes himself:
11 I'm Toralf.
13 I was born at the end of the 60's in the northern part of the GDR.
14 In the early 90's I made my graduate engineer in Electrical Engineering at the University Rostock ("Technical Cybernetics and Automation Technology").
15 Since end of the 90's I do live in Hamburg.
17 In the early 90s I was influenced by the idea of "public domain".
18 A decade later I started to play with Linux.
19 I tried SuSE, looked at RedHat, installed a Gentoo - and stayed at it.
21 At the university I coded in Turbo Pascal.
22 After the study I coded for about 5 years in C.
23 Then I preferred Perl and UN*X/shell tools.
24 Around 2003 I sneaked a little bit into Java.
25 Last year I wrote my first Python scriptlet.
27 For the Ethereal project (today: Wireshark) I wrote a dissector [1] for the IBM Sametime protocol.
28 I made it into the commit history of the Linux kernel with [2].
29 I fuzz tested in the past with Trinity [3] x86 User Mode Linux images and uncovered few bugs in nfs (v4 mostly) and hostfs (UML).
31 I use the hardened profile since 3 years both at my desktop and my server.
32 The later acts since 2014 amongst other things as a Gentoo tinderbox [4].
33 My plan within the Gentoo universe is to help keeping the portage tree in a acceptable quality state.
