Technical level: Advanced Status: Confirmed
Sit together in a room hacking on debian, packaging software not yet available in debian repositories.
We will be trying to complete packaging of dependencies required for updating npm (node.js package manager).
I’m a Debian Developer maintaining over 360 packages in debian (mainly nodejs and ruby libraries required for gitlab and diaspora). I mentor students to start contributing to Free Software. I’m an advocate of civil liberties, and focus on regaining civil liberties like privacy in digital era (Founding member of Indian Pirates http://pirates.org.in).
