Mark Linimon

Mark Linimon is one of the members of the FreeBSD Ports Management and FreeBSD Problem Report Database Management teams.

Mark Linimon started out working on early microprocessor-based designs centered around the Intel 8080A and derivatives. He was a very early customer of BSDi and participated in Usenet starting in the 2400 baud UUCP days. He has had some kind of Unix-derived system at home since late 1988.

In his career, Mark has worked on systems to: read oil logging data from oilfeed tools; analyze bacterial samples in machine tool lubrication systems; mix components for paint; authenticate the legitimacy of Levi's Jeans; read documents for the IRS; automate telephone testing equipment; and distribute databases to multiple CPUs.

He has been a FreeBSD user since the late 1990s, a contributor since 2002, and on the ports management team since 2004. To date, his main interests have been the ports infrastructure; the FreeBSD documentation; and the Problem Reports (PR) database.
