Ohloh profile for Steffen Hoffmann

I'm an engineer with strong ambitions in the field of Free OpenSource Software especially running Debian GNU/Linux, which I apply for private as well as business use.

Trac looked like a promising platform to provide end user support as well as to assist in making better technical documentation involving similar-minded coworkers. So I started my work by fixing a bug or another just to please current and potential users of Trac environments I've setup in commercial environment.

I've been new to Python, but enjoyed to simply make things happen. First it was plugins for Trac, later on Trac core too, mainly dedicated to make trac-0.12 work smoothly and looking nicely (with focus on German localization).

I like many of these great projects here on and I'm eager to learn more from all the clever people and their contributions. Besides I'm contributing to and - well I've got to take care for my real life with a family in the first place.




  • extensible wiki rename support for WikiRenamePlugin, however consider switching to and improving native support in Trac
