Hi everyone! I'm another Gentoo developer. I maintain most of X and do a 
bunch of other stuff that's less immediately relevant.

My main interests in joining this list are:

  - NIH syndrome, which seems to be a major problem with distros. 
    Reinventing basic configuration tools, etc. On a related note, 
    distros are often unprepared to serve as upstream for their own 
    projects when other distros want to use them.

  - Patch sharing. I'm not sure this list is the best place for the 
    actual patches, because I like the idea of working more closely with 
    the individual upstream projects. Looking forward to more 

  - Governance, community, etc. I'm always interested in what's worked 
    and what hasn't worked for other distros.
