I'm a PhD student in theoretical physics at the University of Helsinki. I'm performing research on materials science, and am professionally interested in quantum chemistry.

I've been a Fedora user ever since the first release in 2003, before that I've used RedHat, Gentoo and a little bit of Debian.

I became active as a contributor in Fedora in 2008, as I wanted primarily to improve the status of scientific software in Fedora.


Professional interests

My primary interest is with packages related to my work: molecular dynamics and quantum chemistry. Also analysis tools are important.

Computational science is computationally intensive, thus high performance computing (mostly MPI) is also in my interests. I am proficient with C, C++ and Fortran >=90.

My packages

See full list of reviews of my packages (open or closed) here.

List of my packages that have passed review, are under review or await review.

The list of my packages available in Fedora is available here.

Package sponsorship

I'm a packaging group sponsor, people I've sponsored so far:

  • Julian Aloofi julian.fedora
  • Gary T. Giesen giesen
  • Guido Grazioli guidograzioli
  • Michael J Gruber mjg
  • Gareth John gljohn
  • Takanori Matsuura tmatsuu
  • Veeti Paananen vpaan
  • Joshua Rosen bjrosen
  • Eric Smith brouhaha

If they mess up, please contact me.


  • Martin Gieseking mgieseki

whom I had originally sponsored is now a sponsor himself.

Getting sponsored

If you want to get sponsored by me, contact me at < jussilehtola AT fedoraproject DOT org >.

I expect you to:

  • make a few packages
  • do reviews of packages of other people

I think it is also important to package / review a wide range of packages, since doing e.g. just font or python packages doesn't prove you can handle packaging or reviewing of complicated software.

Package reviews waiting for sponsorship here.

Package review

Reviews I have done: see full list or just packages under review or packages that have passed review.
