Johnny C. Lam is a senior pkgsrc developer whose main area of work is improving the portability and the capabilities of pkgsrc. He has headed the organizing of two pkgsrcCon meetings in Europe to promote a better understanding of pkgsrc infrastructure development. He is still looking to dupe someone else into taking maintainership of the Perl package.
