Late introduction

Hi again,

I would like to introduce myself again, now that I've joined the
package maintainers. I would like to thank my sponsor (kevin), Chris
Roberts for his warm welcome, Christopher Meng and the others who
helped me so far.

Starting today (at least in my timezone =) the makeself package is
available for Fedora 19, and I'll focus on tools for developers. I for
instance would like to package tools such as vagrant (that transitively
depends on makeself). I have a special interest in Varnish and Java
ecosystems, Java and C being my primary languages. I know Linux folks
tend to hate Java, so in return I'll hate Ruby[1]. And if sometimes
you don't understand my English, please remember : because is French.

Et pour les francophones (parce que je pense en avoir repérés), un
petit bonjour. En espérant avoir l'occasion de croiser certains
d'entre vous.


[1] just kidding, and vagrant is written in Ruby AFAIK ;)
