I don’t consider myself to have made major contributions to Open Source yet (most of the code I work on is closed source), but here are some of my humble contributions to date. When I hit some issues with open source software that I need to fix, I aim to upstream my improvements so that others can benefit from them.
Patches & misc:
- Python 3’s ipaddress.IPv6Network.hosts function omits network and broadcast addresses: filed bug and submitted patch, which was merged into Python 3.5
- Bugfixes for the lig utility.
- Created the Arch Linux AUR package for lispmob. Note that this currently is in the Arch User Repository and hasn’t “graduated” into the main repositories yet.
- Rewrote ArchLinux’ wiki page on smokeping after finding that it was out of date, too complicated and that the community was supportive.
- Added speedtest mini server support to zpeters’ Speedtest CLI utility written in Go.
Occasionally I like to browse stackoverflow, look for some interesting problem and solve it. Those interesting answers don’t end up with the most upvotes since they tend to deal with somewhat obscure problems (like how to send TCP data in 10 byte chunks or how to execute programs in xterm over an ssh session), whereas people love the trivial answers to common problems (like how to use sshfs on OSX).
