Self-introduction: Rémi Verschelde (Akien)
Seeing the recent activity on this ML, I'm joining in.
My name is Rémi Verschelde, I'm French and living in Germany, and have
been using Linux and playing libre games since 2005 with the last
Mandrake (10.2) and the Mandriva/Mageia.
I'm likely one of the black sheeps here as I am neither a Fedora
packager nor a Fedora user
I am however a Mageia packager and user (another RPM-based
community-driven distro , for those that don't know it) and believe
in cross-distro collaboration on packaging, so I often try to reach
out to Fedora and Debian maintainers to share developments.
In Mageia, I'm likely the most active packager of games and
game-related tools (currently registered as maintaining 300+ packages
, though I tend to effectively maintain a few other games
registered to other less active contributors).
I'm also involed in Mageia's QA and Atelier (artwork, marketing and
communication) teams, as well as co-leader of the packaging team
(we're a small community of developers, so multitasking is needed ;)).
More recently, I also got involved in upstream development of various
games and tools:
* Godot Engine , where I helped build a true free software
community of co-developers using my experience contributing to and
leading libre communities. I'm now one of its main developers (though
clearly not the most technically competent, I still dabble at C++).
* OpenDungeons , a Dungeon Keeper-inspired libre 3D game using
OGRE/CEGUI/SFML and C++. I'm less active there now due to some loss of
momentum and Godot Engine + Mageia taking all my free time.
* Various projects from KOBUGE-Games , an amateur game development
"studio" focusing only on making libre games (GPLv3+ for most of them,
some MIT) using Godot Engine.
That's it for an already too long introduction, looking forward to
working with you on games packaging so that both Fedora and Mageia can
benefit from it.
