The Linux Setup - Neil McGovern, Debian Project Leader
I’m the current Debian Project Leader—which is a very impressive title that boils down to being a figurehead for the Debian project.
I first started getting involved with Debian in 2003, and have wended my way through various roles in the project, from designing t-shirts to being the Release Manager for the last three releases, Lenny, Squeeze and Wheezy.
In my day job, I’m the engineering manager for Collabora, an open source software consultancy which is fairly similar—basically making sure that all the engineers are happy and helping unblock any problems that come along.
