Good idea,

I'm Hans de Goede. I'm mainly active writing kernel drivers and creating 
packages for Fedora. I know strange combo.

I maintain 200+ source packages for Fedora, and I manage to keep the total open 
bug count on those 200 close to 0.

My main reason for being on this list, is because quite a few of my packages 
(lots of games / gaming libs) are dead upstream, so I have no where to send all 
the bugfixes I do and I still would like to see a way to share these with others.

More general I see lots of duplicated work between distro's and I would like to 
see some (efficient) methods on avoiding this, as there is enough other OSS 
work to do.

My current cross-distro coordination work is lurking on the debian-games-devel 
list (and posting patches for dead upstream packages there) and I try to share 
spec files and patches with packman.
