jmpp (a.k.a Juan Manuel Palacios)'s Wiki entry, not only one of the MacPorts Managers but also the only "Latino" in the entire team ;-)

Project Manager Duties

Following is a list of my personal duties as one of the project managers:

Current Primary Project Goals

This is a list of the goals that currently hold my main interest:

  • Completing with Bill, our very generous sysadmin, some of the project HostingRequests we have with our Mac OS Forge host;
  • Implementing the by now infamous LoggingProposal into the core of MacPorts so that we can get serious about constructing a build farm that will pave the way for binary packages;

Completed Project Goals

And, of course, a list of the goals I've already completed:

  • Design and deployment of our new project website (source), including a substantially revamped PortIndex2MySQL script to feed the Available Ports page on an automated basis;
  • Deployment of our new project guide;
  • Design of the new postflight script that takes care of setting up a MacPorts compatible shell environment for users installing off our pgk installers, according to a set of well defined rules;
  • Design and deployment of the migration code and Makefile rules that fully moved the MacPorts project away from its old DarwinPorts name, at the sources, client and server level, in order to give it its new feel;
  • 1.6.0 MacPorts release;
  • 1.5.2 MacPorts release;
  • 1.5.1 MacPorts release;
  • 1.5.0 MacPorts release;
  • 1.4.0 MacPorts release;
  • 1.3.0 MacPorts release;
  • 1.2.0 MacPorts release;
  • 1.1.2 MacPorts release;
  • 1.1.0 MacPorts release;
  • some other stuff I'm probably not remembering now ;-)

Ports I maintain

(I promise I'll get back to them sooner than later!)

Personal References

Here's my personal website, which is still mostly just a place-holder with little content but which will show you stuff like my CV (NOTE: currently only in Spanish, I'll translate it into English soonish).
