What I Do for Debian GNU/Linux
I was, for a while, deeply involved in managing the master FTP archive. I initiated the concept of a 'master.debian.org' machine to be the home for package developers, distinct from the 'ftp.debian.org' machine or machines which would be the publicly visible manifestations of Debian's network presence. I'm pleased that when things got busy and my ability to continue to provide network bandwidth without hassles started to erode that Simon Shapiro at I-Connect took this function over, and has been doing an excellant job of it ever since.
I continue to maintain packages for the system. There are over 100 of us maintaining packages for the Debian [ http://www.debian.org/ ] GNU/Linux operating system distribution.
This page is incomplete, but represents a start at providing some status information about what I maintain, and how I maintain it.

Package Management With CVS
I really like the CVS version control system, but I am in many ways still a novice user. I'm working on cutting over to using CVS for managing all of my Debian package sources, but I'm not there yet. More as time permits.
