Reported a large performance regression, helped identify the problematic commit and verify a fix.

OpenSUSE

Contributed a bunch of packages.

Contributed to cabal-rpm to make it more usable for OpenSUSE packaging.

Fixed json-rpc server result to be nil on error responses (conforming to the json-rpc standard). However, my commit did not go through due to CLA bureaucracy.

Opened a bunch of issues when I used it to design a REST API.

Groovy

Reported dead code and overzealous stack trace filtering

Suds

Patched a NullPointerException kind of bug and sent it to the maintainer who expanded it into commits r707 and r708.

I believe this was my first FOSS contribution some time at 2011.
