I maintain quite a few packages, see the package database for the complete list:

My packaging interests falls under several categories; if there is any package you'd want to see packages that I might be interested in, feel free to send an email!

Programming languages

  • Functional languages (esp. Lisp dialects and Lua)
  • compiler frameworks (e.g. LLVM)
  • scripting languages (esp. Python)
  • GNOME-related languages (e.g. Vala)


  • GNUstep
  • ROX


  • Board games
  • Cross-platform games


  • bti, a command-line Twitter client
  • rlwrap, a wrapper for readline

I am a packager sponsor; if you are new to Fedora and am looking for sponsorship, do contact me; especially (but not necessarily) if your packaging interests coincide with mine.

I was sponsored by Toshio Kuratomi, and have sponsored the following wonderful folks:

Proven packager

I am a proven packager, and can commit to packages I do not directly maintain; if you need a packaging bug fixed and the primary maintainer is non-responsive, let me know.


I have an interest in porting useful software from *BSD operating systems to Linux. My first port is cpdup, and I am currently porting the DragonFly Mail Agent. Both are from DragonFly BSD.
