Hi, my name is Vince, and I'm a stong advocate of Open Source software. Over the years, I've contributed to the discussions, submitted bug reports, and where possible, submitted bug fixes to various open source projects. Over time, I lost track of where all I had contributed, so I've created this gist to help keep an organized list of what I've done for each of these projects.
Besides other's open source projects that I contribute to, there are also several that I personally manage as well. You can see all of these projects over at: https://github.com/darkain
