I began using Linux 3 years ago. I had ubuntu 10.10 installed for about 4 hours before removing it in favor of Arch Linux and its packaging structure. After a year and a half of using archlinux, I decided I wanted to be a Trusted User, and began working towards that goal. I began adopting any interesting package I could find in the AUR and updating it.
I maintain 59 packages in the aur, 86 packages in community and multilib, and have submitted several patches to pacman. I also maintain my own repository made up mostly of the new VCS PKGBUILD formats.
On IRC I go by gtmanfred. I can also be contacted at email.
I now work for Salt Stack INC as a Software Engineer.
