Other open source involvements


I've been using Archlinux as my main distribution since 2007. I maintain several packages at the AUR and I try to contribute to the Archwiki whenever I can. I am also a member of an unofficial package team in Greece, where we serve a repository with popular packages that aren't in the official repos. I have also contributed to the localization of pacman and the AUR interface. Check my transifex profile. Recently I helped to package the snf-image-creator tool of the synnefo IaaS.

Google Summer of Code with Fedora


GitLab is an open source git repository application, built on Ruby on Rails. I have been using it since version 2.0 and started contributing as of version 4.0.

As of April 2014 I joined the community core-team as a gitlab-recipes maintainer.

There is an ongoing effort to package GitLab for Fedora. If you want to learn more or even better join the team of super heroes, drop me a message!
