Drupal Contributions: 

I designed and wrote the system for releasing Drupal contributions, where all contrib modules and themes have real releases, version strings, and much more. I was one of the architects and implementors of the Drupal.org redesign. I maintained the Drupal CVS repositories and all the code that integrated them with drupal.org. I was also an architect and implementor for the migration from CVS to Git.

I'm the maintainer for the Update manager in Drupal core. I'm the primary maintainer for Project, Project issue tracker, OG Project, CVS integration, CVS deploy, Signup, Update status advanced settings, and a few other modules. You can see more details at the Projects by dww page.

I'm a co-maintainer for Views, Version Control API, Version Control Project Integration, Organic groups, Devel, Diff, Drupal Markup Engine, Panelizer, Bio, Database administration, and a handful of other modules.

I've provided hundreds of patches to Drupal core since version 4.7.0 (by some counts I was the 14th most prolific contributor to 7.0) and a number of contributed modules, including: Content Creation Kit (CCK), Panels, Node queue, Event, and Location.

I'm also a member of the Drupal Security team and have discovered and fixed a number of vulnerabilities in various contributed modules. I'm a member of the Drupal.org Infrastructure Team and have been involved in nearly every major deployment and upgrade since 2006.
