Vadim has been active Gentoo for about 15 years already, maintaining desktops,
servers (incl. Hardened), and even Prefix Gentoo installations.
He made several contributions to gentoo-related/gentoo-hosted projects
(like Genkernel), also he was proxy-maintainer for some packages even before
the "Git Era", and he also contributed to some packages through GitHub Pull
He also used to contribute to Gentoo/KDE project and oficial Lua overlay.
Vadim runs own business of servers administration, InfoSecurity investigation
He also used to be a CTO of Pirate Party of Russia in 2009-2017.
His hobbies and interests area includes: computer science, DYI, math, physics,
astronomy, radio engineering and soldering.
I'd like to support Vadim as candidate for a new developer. He does a lot of great work, including many Lua packages, some Nginx stuff and he also maintains telegram-desktop source builds in his own overlay.
If fact, Vadim was one of the people who helped myself become a developer back in a day, sharing a great deal of his experience and advice.
