I seem to have worn quite a few hats over the years...

Apache-wise, I [1] was elected a Member [2] of the Apache Software
Foundation in 2005, elected to the IPMC [3] in 2006 and served on the
Legal Affairs committee [4] from 2007 till 2010. Code-wise [5], in the
crazy early days at Jakarta [6] I spent a lot of time in the Commons
[7] community factoring out micro-libraries. Latterly, over in the
community at James [8] we factored out a series of components from a
monolithic code base and grew a vibrant community around them. A
particular interest was creating a working IMAP library. I'm to blame
for too much of the process, build and release documentation Apache
inflicts on it's projects and podlings. I have interests in community
building.

I'm recovering from an injury ATM and have only limited computer time,
and too many existing interests for the time I have. But I think I
might be able to help the community over the initial build, release
and licensing issues, with factoring out components and the general
culture shock.

I'm (very) independent ;-)
