he he, yes I should make sure to wear my fake beard at the interviews :)

I guess maybe the job interviewing culture varies from place to place
but I don't expect a job application screener / job interviewer to
actually spend the time to go online and look at all these things.
They are busy people. Maybe if they find me really interesting they
would. But links don't help kick the door open as a brief one-stop
document would. Chances are the interviewer won't even know enough
about open source to understand the information in those links.

I can of course write up my contributions myself but it would be sorf
