Is Aaron Griffin still active in arch?

.. Simply just curious about this! smile

I was wondering this question because I haven't seen any ML posts from him for along time(arch-dev-public), and I just thought it to be a little strange that the "arch overlord" was being so silent? (on the dev ML at least I mean)

I have been wondering about this for about a year or so, and now thought that I would like to finally ask the guys in the know about it(if such people are reading this post that is)...

Thanks in advance.

He mainly deals with donations and other behind the scenes stuff these days.  So no involvement in packaging etc.

The last time phrakture got hacked, it brought his machine down for awhile.  Especially after early usr space and then systemd.  It took his hacker a long time to get through all of that.  By that time, phrakture had other things to do.

That's what Allan would like you to believe.

In reality, he's trussed up in Allan's basement.

The only reason I can tell you this is that since the crash Allan's agency can no longer afford to send him halfway around the world to deal with me directly. Those of you unfortunate folks in Europe are still fair game though, so watch your backs!
