GNOME contributions:

Balsa, Galeon, GDM2, CVSGnome, Atlantis, ... countless patches there and here ...

Detailed description:
I was a long time contributor to Balsa eMail client a few years back with many contributions to it such as 
Toolbar icons changes which also affected a hunge part of code changes, general code changes in Balsa, 
Bugfixes and enchancement. As a proof you can verify this in the Authors list.

I was also interested in Galeon for a long time in it's beginning state, contributed the Bookmarks backup 
system to it which always recursively backuped the Bookmarks on change so in worst case you could revert back 
to the normal default. Also contributed a bunch of other stuff to it like patches and general stuff. 
Re-Worked the EmbedGetkMozilla patch a few times to suite the needs for new Mozilla interface to Galeon and 
so on.

GDM2 I spent a few days fixing some memoryleaks that I found while scanning through the code but well I 
shouldn't have named GDM2 here it just came into my mind. There are definately many more projects that I 
contributed over the years, some stuff there, some stuff here. Well my name simply float around on various 
ChangeLogs it's simple to check that up.

I am also author of CVSGnome one of the leading bigger GNOME Buildscripts that many users prefer these days 
to build GNOME. This is a big contribution to GNOME which takes a lot of time and care to keep it up to date 
and enchanced since it deals with CVS and Tarballs. Well I think almost everyone heard of CVSGnome already 
because I maintain it for over 3 years now:

Atlantis is my biggest baby that I am working on. It's a simply Web browser based upton GtkHTML2. I did this 
only for fun and in my spare time to learn more about the GTK+/GNOME API and to learn more about the huge 
changes that went into GNOME the last couple of years. Well you know it's not always easy keeping oneself up 
to date with information when you are not sitting down and acutally use the libraries API to do some code.

In case you require more stuff from me then feel free to reply and I tar a bunch of patches up for 
verification :---)
