bandali's home page

Hi, welcome to my home page! I'm Amin Bandali (or just bandali) and I'm a computing scientist and a free/libre software activist. I am a GNU maintainer of Jami and GNUzilla and IceCat, and I wear a few other hats around the GNU Project as well. I'm also an ex-intern and current volunteer with the Free Software Foundation.

You can contact me via email by writing to I'm always happy to receive (non-spam) emails, with the caveat that my response time varies depending on the number of messages I'm working my way through at any given time. You can also send me GPG-encrypted mail if you wish.


These are my articles on topics and issues I care about.
