Why Debian?: I have been using Debian based distributions since the age of 13 and Debian squeeze one it was release. Debian helped me a lot in my studies and business. I have used Debian on production servers that create great value. I really hope I can contribute back to Debian in a way or two.
My previous Debian contributions: Not yet, sorry.
