Hello everyone,

I've decided to join the package maintainers and I would like to introduce

I have been a linux user since 2001 and a Red Hat/Fedora user since 2003.
My main systems run on Fedora (of course) and Gentoo. I have a background
in chemistry, particularly molecular modeling and for the past decade I
have been working as a "general purpose IT guy" and part-time
web-developer. I build systems, I design and deploy SOHO networks, I do
some light pen-testing and provide tech support. I have experience coding
in Fortran, Perl, PHP, Python, shell scripts, (X)HTML/CSS, I have worked
with several CMSs -though in the past few years mostly with Joomla- and I
have built some customized versions of embedded distros such as OpenWRT and
other device-related software. During the past decade I have done
alpha/beta/QA testing for a number of projects (most of them FLOSS) and I
have provided translations and bug reports for others.

I would like to give back something more than bug reports and translations
and also improve my coding skills along the way. I have a couple of
programs that I would like to maintain, but for the moment there remains an
issue with their licenses.

There is also a patched version of libatasmart, that takes care of an issue
with several older Western Digital hard drives, that is awaiting review ( and I would really
appreciate it if someone could take the time to look into that.

Best Regards
