  • gedit-vala, a collection of Vala plugins for the gedit editor

some Python software:

There are some packages that I have contributed to, but am not co-maintaining (yet):

I also maintain gai, a framework for writing GNOME panel applets, and gai-pal, a virtual "pet" that can display a fortune cookie or another program's output.
