Debian and Me
Since I started working full time, I've had less time and energy to
spend on Debian. As a result, I'm not really active in
maintaining the Project's
I am still maintaining two Debian packages, and have some ideas about other possible packages. (Mostly stuff I have on systems at work that (amazingly!) hasn't been packaged yet for Debian.)
When I was working on the
tetex-* packages, I wrote several manual pages
(“manpages”) for the teTeX project, most of which have been
lcdf-typetools is a collection of programs for
manipulating multiple-master and OpenType fonts. It incorporates
mminstance package I used to maintain.
Type 1 Utils
t1utils is a set of six utilities for working with Type 1
t1asciichanges PFB (binary) fonts into PFA (ASCII) format
t1binarychanges PFA format fonts into binary format
t1disasmtranslates PFBs or PFAs into a human-readable and -editable format
t1asmtranslates the human-readable files into PFA or PFB format
unpost) translates Macintosh Type 1 fonts into PFB or PFA format
t1mactranslates PFA or PFB files into Macintosh format
Packages that I used to maintain that I either gave up for adoption or that were removed from the distribution.
texdoctk after Adrian Bunk left the project.
texdoctk provides a graphical browser (using PerlTk)
for teTeX documentation.
texdoctk has been merged
into teTeX, so it's no longer maintained as a separate package.
mmafm, a utility to create
AFM files for multiple-master PostScript fonts, and
utility to produce a standard PFB font for a single instance of that
multiple-master font. MMinstance is now part of the LCDF Typetools.
ThoughtTracker is a knowledge base application. Its purpose is to provide you with a searchable hyperlinked database of information and ideas.
The author of this program disappeared after graduating from
university. It hadn't been maintained for about a year before he
graduated and had already been showing some severe coding issues
with Debian's move to later versions of various libraries and the
gcc C++ compiler.
Obtaining the Packages
The current versions of my packages should be available from the
Debian archives in the
distribution. In the future, I may make experimental packages
available from this site before I'm ready to upload them to Debian
