Another year is gone. It’s now more than a year I’m using Frugalware (iirc I started using it in September 2010), soon it’ll be a year I’m in the Developer Team too.
I had a look at my first contributions (puddletag was the first FrugalBuild I made), thanks to other developers I’ve improved my skills and I sent some other Frugalbuilds for other software too. Up to now I’m the maintainer of 104 packages, some of them were new, others belong to developers who aren’t active anymore. I know, 104 is a little number compared to some other devs (Devil505 has 967 packages, Bouleetbil 994), though I usually add a new package when I notice something I need isn’t yet in the repo, but I have to say that FW’s repos have a lot of packages now and everything I need is there.
I’m also glad I’ve helped bumping KDE since 4.7.0, I enjoyed it and I hope I can help with next releases too (4.8 is really close:). Another thing I’m kinda proud of is that I’ve managed to write some (stupid) patches for pacman-g2, to add some (I hope useful) features.
2011 has been a great year and I’m sure we’ll do even more in 2012, so I want to give you my best wishes for the new year. I want to thank other developers too, for the great things they did during this year, and as Phayz would say:
May you always be Frugal
I want to leave you with a poem:
One K to rule them all, one K to find them,
One K to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Qt, where the Shadows lie.
