== What do you want to help out with? ==
We have modified Bugzilla to manage Problem Reporting and Corrective
Action (PRACA) data at NASA, and would like to contribute
improvements back to the main Bugzilla codebase. Max Kanat-Alexander
has helped us with many of these things and I am sure he will
appreciate our efforts to make them more modular and generalizable.
Among the changes we have made:
- UI improvements such as AJAX field changes, tabbed bug display
pages, resizing text entry fields.
- Reworking of interfaces for search, reports, saved searches, and
- Customizable field titles, which may help with internationalization
and large product bases.
== Historical qualifications ==
I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon
University and have extensive network programming and Unix admin
experience. I have been working at NASA for the last three years.
Recently, I have written a Perl-DL interpreter to convert legacy
(1965-1975) binary satellite image data into modern formats such as HDF.
Less recently, I have written a Perl-Tk frontend to a database of
medical data, allowing patient records to be sent to any of several
applications from a single UI.
