I contribute to Linux and Debian in many ways. Here is the list of my major contributions:

- Maintain Debian-Installer image for a few Buffalo Linkstation NAS devices as ARM porter.
- Add GNU/Screen support to Debian-Installer (Since Stretch).
- Maintain shadowsocks-libev and its related packages, which play an important role to fight with censorship in some areas of this planet.
- Maintain significant contrib/non-free package: torbrowser-launcher, broadcom-sta
- Maintain a few Android related packages, such as repo and adb.
- Maintainer of a few system level packages such as adjtimex and wide-dhcpv6.
The Debian Android Tools team is focused on packaging the Android development tools for Debian. The goal of this team is to get as much of the Android SDK and development tools into Debian as possible.
In the past year, we planned to have major feature inclusion which helps both android and java teams by bringing Kotlin language and updating android packages, and, Gradle which is one of the major build systems for both java and kotlin projects. Major changes bring with major work and responsibility. Since kotlin and Gradle are dependent there are a lot of things to discuss along with the android packages update. Gladly with lots of people’s support and contributions, now kotlin is unstable.
Apart from discussing the new features, various discussions about team maintenance and its future and interaction with the outreach students are also expected to happen.
