Interview with Ian Jackson

Debian Planet: "I had just noticed it's been a long time since Debian Planet featured an interview with a Debian personality, when an ideal candidate in the form of Ian Jackson made a rare appearance on IRC. As well as being a former DPL, a current member of the technical commitee and the author of dpkg, the original BTS, debiandoc-sgml, constitution, policy and other documents, and several other free software projects including SAUCE, userv and adns, he holds a doctorate in computer security and is the owner of the machine chiark.greenend.org.uk, home to multiple nefarious internet geeks, projects like PuTTY, and 'a few other weirdos too'."
