I am David Trudgian, currently living in Cornwall in the UK.

I contribute to Fedora as part of my employment with Sylabs Inc., maintaining singularity-ce and possibly some closely related packages.

Please note that I do not check Fedora related email, bugzilla etc. outside of working hours / workdays. It might take me a little while for me to get back to you if I'm on vacation.


I first picked up a Linux distribution on a magazine cover CD in 1999, and have spent much of my professional life and hobby time working/playing with it since. I studied computer science in the early 00s, before migrating into bioinformatics research, and then high performance computing. Currently, I work on a container runtime used mainly in HPC, packaged as singularity-ce here.
