Looking for open source projects that need help with packaging

In follow up to a friend’s recent blogpost “Bored Java Dev looking for Open Source project” I’m also looking for an open source project to contribute to. I’m not that much of a developer but I’d like to get more familiar with Linux distribution packaging. I have basic experience creating
Gentoo ebuilds, Debian DEB and CentOS RPM packages, but I want to learn and to get more involved.

Anyone with a promising new open source project feel free to send me a request at
tom [at] I do however have some prerequisites:

  • Free and Open Source Software only, no exceptions
  • Non-commercial projects only
  • Preferably not limited to one (Linux) distribution
  • No Qt (KDE) applications due to personal preferences

What I can offer:

  • Spare time
  • Dedication
  • Build farm on x86, x86-64 and UltraSparc64

What I can’t offer:
