Arch Linux

I am a developer of the Arch Linux distribution

I maintain the toolchain for Arch Linux (binutils, the gcc packages, glibc and linux-api-headers), its dependencies (cloog, gmp, isl, libmpc, mpfr), autotools and related packages (autoconf, automake, m4, libtool, pkg-config) and other standard development tools (bison, flex, make). See a complete list of packages I maintain here.

I also am one of the project leads for the development of the Pacman package manager.

My Wishlist

I spend a large portion of my spare time doing open source development, in particular for Arch Linux. If you feel like rewarding me for the work I do for free, have a look at my Amazon Wishlist. An Amazon Gift Card starts at just US$0.15 and works just as well as any of the other items!
