Hi! I live in Ghent (Flanders, Belgium) and work in Brussels I live and work in London. I tend to visit my hometown, Thessaloniki (Greece), a couple of times a year. If you're nearby any of those places and interested in Debian or free software in general, drop me an email to meetup.

In case it's not clear: Serafeim is my first name, and is pronounced similarly to the italian Serafino.

If you haven't heard of Debian before, you're better off reading about it, than reading the rest of this page.

Debian involvement

I maintain an assortment of packages, some of which as part of the python-modules and python-apps teams (see links below). I've been involved in Debian since early 2008 and I'm currently in the NM queue a Debian Developersince May 2010.

I also do some one-on-one mentoring, as an NM application manager but also more informally via Debian women.

QA material

  • If you're interested in adopting orphaned or RFA'd packages and find the WNPP package lists too long to go through manually, check out members.hellug.gr/serzan/wnpp. It's useful to browse WNPP packages in terms of debtags (eg, if you're after python packages, lookup implemented-in::python). If you're interested in a facet that's not currently used in the online version, checkout wnpp-by-tags and use the command line version (or drop me email and I'll add the missing facet in the web version).



  • ducks, a general purpose batch job scheduler that's meant as a replacement for DAK's dinstall (original spec)

  • reconf-inetd, a replacement for update-inetd, aka DEP9 (status: uploaded to experimental)
