Hello, all.

I am not currently a porter but I would like to be one for the s390x
architecture.


I am familiar with zSeries system programming and have a lot of
experience in running Linux in virtual environments, mostly z/VM on
large IBM processors..  I use Linux for 11 year, family with cross
compiling tool chain.

I am not a DD/DM. and I am somewhat surprised not to see Philiip Kern
(pk...@debian.org) on the list.
