Which project do you currently contribute to?
I am a Debian Developer and I am currently maintaining about 135
packages in Debian. This is my Debian QA page where you will find the
list of packages I am currently maintaining in Debian:
Apart from Debian I have been contributing to many open source projects:
1) I am author of open source project python-gastables: python modules
for compressible gas flow calculations: Homepage:
2) I am also author of Krickscore - KDE applet for cricket scores.
3) I have been contributing to Jajuk - Advanced Juke box project,
where I am working as a Developer and Debian package maintainer.
4) I am also currently maintaing pidgin-festival ( formerly knows as
festival-gaim). I rewrote festival-gaim to make it work with the new
pidgin API. Homepage: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pidgin-festival/
How does it feels to have two DDs from neighbouring rooms?
(Kumar Appaiah stays next to my room)
It is a big advantage having him next door because we get to learn a
lot from each other. Usually there is a lot of activity going on in
Debian, and it becomes very difficult to keep track of things; having
another DD next door really helps a lot to catch up with action.
