 Jan Schaumann: pkgsrc

 6 pm, Soho Apple Store at 103 Prince Street

 The NetBSD Packages Collection (pkgsrc) is a framework for building
 third-party software on NetBSD and other UNIX-like systems, currently
 containing nearly 5000 packages. It is used to enable freely available
 software to be configured and built easily on supported platforms.

 Jan Schaumann works as a System Administrator in the Department of
 Computer Science at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, USA,
 where he manages a large, almost homogenous NetBSD environment in an
 academic environment; runs clustered High Performance Computing
 Facilities based on NetBSD; ports and maintains NetBSD pkgsrc tools and
 packages on non-NetBSD platforms such as IRIX and Linux; teaches classes
 in UNIX programming and System Administration. (Other activities he
 enjoys that he unfortunately does not get paid for usually involve a
 board often in combination with some form of H20.)

 Jan holds a BS and MS in Computer Science and joined the NetBSD Project
 as a developer in January of 2002. Within the NetBSD Project, he is a
 member of the Communication Executive Committee, leads the www team and
 -- after having ported the pkgsrc tools to IRIX -- finds himself
 maintaining the infrastructure for this platform as well as numerous
