Hello,

As suggested in the packaging guide [0], I'm here to introduce myself! I'm Jie, currently working as a software engineering intern on the Java team at RedHat. Most of my work is on Thermostat [1], a instrumentation tool for the Hotspot JVM and Icedtea-Web [2], a browser plugin for Java applets and an implementation of Java Webstart. I'm a Computer Science student at the University of Toronto (Canada) and am aiming to finish in 2016.

For packaging work, I am hoping to maintain two packages [3, 4] in Fedora for use in Thermostat. In terms of past experience, I have tinkered with Thermostat's packaging for Fedora, working on getting a usable spec/rpm for source from the HEAD repository and I have also submitted a tiny patch to kxml [5], adding OSGi metadata to the package. 


Cheers!
