My name's Kyle and I've been an on-again, off-again contributor to Wine for a few years now. I mostly stick to working on documentation and the wiki; I've always been more of a writer that happens to program occasionally. I have been known to randomly branch out into bug-hunting, testing, and web-design though. Maybe I'll get around to sending in a patch to Wine proper one of these days (I'm looking at you, msxml3).

To-Do List

I have a lot of things to juggle in life right now so wine isn't getting much of my time, but if the mood strikes me, I might work on these in the future:

Short term

  • Help migrate and cleanup some pages from the old wiki
  • Finish salvaging ideas from Winezeug
  • Check in from time-to-time on the state of wine's packaging for Debian
    • (Bonus points) Make some of Wine's build and run dependencies Multiarch compliant

Medium term

  • Simplify / improve the build process for Wine some
    • (First step) Test whether precompiled headers are a worthwhile addition
  • Proof of concept for WineHQ on a web-framework
    • Try using Symfony? Laravel? (Both sound promising and the bulk of WineHQ is already PHP-based)
    • (Big payoff?) Have an automated metrics page that draws links between all parts of the project
  • A little Bug Triage?

Long term

  • Test some old programs of mine and submit patches for the relevant DLLs
    • msxml3
    • d3dx9_36
    • I've had weird problems with "wav" and "midi" sounds fighting in a couple programs (???)
    • (Ambitious) Installer troubles (DCOM? gulp)
