Hi!

I'm Michael, aka jubalh, and I create and especially help maintaining free software.
Some people expressed the wish to support me and the work I'm doing in my own free time, so here is my Patreon page :-)

Often people create awesome free software, but after some years life happens and they don't have the time to maintain it any longer. Sometimes another person takes over the project, sometimes not.
In some cases there are (security relevant) fixes and various distributions apply various patches which make the program behave differntly on each of them. None of them can send their fixes and patches upstream because no upstream exists.

I created the lazarus-pkgs organization on GitHub in an effort to save such packages from dying.
So far I maintain two programs there:


suck is a tool to grab news from a remote NNTP server and feed them to another or save locally. It's used at servers in the USENET.

panini is a tool for creating perspective views from panoramic and wide angle photographs.

Then there is the profanity XMPP client. James, who is the original creator of this command-line chat client is still around, but has almost no time to work or maintain profanity any longer.

He granted me commit access to his git repository in 2018, and since then I try to bring the project forward. Cleaning up existing issues and fixing things lead to the release of 0.6.0, two years after the last release. I try to coordinate work on new features and motivate new people to join the project.

I try to help various Linux distributions by maintaining packages. Currently I maintain around 80 packages in openSUSE, 3 in Gentoo and one in Debian.

I'm part of the team that creates the LXQt desktop environment, though I don't do any active development there I try to find bugs before a new release and help with issues.

Some people enjoy my command-line sudoku game nudoku. Which is part of many Linux distributions.

You can see the complete list of git, svn, hg commits I did to contribute to an open source project at this page. The page is created with another tool I wrote, called gontributions.

It doesn't contain reports and solutions on bugzilla, IRC support, time spent on GitHub issues etc.
