I'm a PhD student in mathematics. My current research area is diophantine approximation on abelian varieties, which involves algebraic geometry and number theory. French readers can learn more about my math activities on my university webpages.

Like most mathematicians, I discovered LaTeX while writing my Master thesis, but unlike most of my colleagues, I soon came to spend a lot of time playing with it as a programming language and exchanging ideas (and later answering questions) on the Usenet group fr.comp.text.tex.

Later, I developed a few LaTeX packages, then joined the TeX Live team. I also took over development of the texdoc utility shipped with TeX Live. Recently, I've been involved in developing packages for LuaLaTeX. On my blog (in French), I share tips and news on TeX, among other geeky topics.

I love programming (and other aspects of free software development and maintenance). Besides (La)TeX and Lua, I practice Perl and C for TeX Live development. I also enjoy administrating Unix systems.

comment How do I set the documentation PDF for my package?
@cgnieder The texdoc mailing list is probably a better place for texdoc-related requests: tug.org/texdoc

comment texdoc won't work?
Maybe the actual documentation is in a separate package or depends on an option? Can you check using another tool (eg locate, find) if file named 'texdoc.pdf' is present in your installation and where it is located? Also, what's the output of 'kpsewhich -var-value TEXDOCS'?

comment Is the package ucharclasses not included in TeX Live?
@DevSolar: If you're unhappy with the current situation, feel free to create a package on tlcontrib: one of the goals of this alternate package repository for TeX Live is precisely to accept material that is not included in TL due to licence issues. And since TL 2012 it's easy to use both repositories (tlnet + tlcontrib) at the same time.
