Hi; I'm Peter Gordon. I'm a 22 year-old GNU/Linux and general Free Software advocate. You can contact me in many ways, as listed below. I maintain packages in Fedora (listed below). Aside from this, I also try to support the Fedora Project in other, more general, ways (such as helping out on the mailing lists, forums, etc.) I maintain a blog about my activities and interests, whose GNU/Linux-related posts are syndicated to Fedora People . My self-introduction mail is archived, as well.
