Pierre Habouzit

Pierre has been a Debian Developer for almost 3 years, where he started packaging KDE for almost 2 years, and then contributed to the glibc team, of which he is still a member.

He is also quite interested in alternative servers and tools (pdnsd, nsd, xinetd, lighttpd, …). He is also a git contributor, where I spend my time trying to make the code easier to maintain, and to make the UI better. For example, he is responsible for the strbuf's APIs in git, and the parse-options ones, that will be the reason why you can finally type `git rm -rf` and don't get a peeved insult from git for doing so.
