I'm Michael.


I enjoy working in teams and communities, thus spending a lot of my time developing Free Software.

Being an openSUSE member, I also maintain(ed) packages in Debian, Gentoo, Funtoo, Yocto and Buildroot.


I'm a member of the LXQt Desktop environment team and maintain it on openSUSE, but on most systems use GNOME myself.
