New FreeBSD Committer

I’ve been part of the KDE Community for over 15 years .. maybe 20. I started with Red Hat Linux, and then ran Yellow Dog Linux with KDE on my work desktop; probably KDE 1.1.2. But mostly I was one of the FreeBSD and Solaris people. I packaged KDE for Solaris on big Sun iron like the E10k, and then for FreeBSD around 2005 (I know this because of at least one wonderfully descriptive commit message Add boogers
on July 26th, 2005 in Area51), and then for OpenSolaris for a while, and moved back to FreeBSD when OpenSolaris went away.

So in a sense I have been part-time part of the FreeBSD Community for nearly 15 years as well. FreeBSD has reached Tier-1 status within KDE now, with the KDE FreeBSD CI, which much stronger upstreaming happening, and with Tobias and Raphael following new releases pretty closely. I’ve been pushing and prodding at our ports tree a lot, and chasing CMake releases (and reporting bugs), and trying to get some KDE KF5-based applications into the official ports tree. So I’m happy to now receive a FreeBSD ports commit bit, with Tobias and Raphael acting as mentors. I won’t pretend this will immediately lead to Qt 5.9 and KDE Applications 17.latest in the official FreeBSD ports tree, but it increases the (direct) effort we can expend on it.

For my FreeBSD hat, I can be reached at [email protected], like my KDE hat is [email protected] .
