Karl asked me to introduce myself...

I'm using LaTeX since a very long time, and my special field is
processing Asian languages -- my main contribution to the LaTeX
community is the CJK package which supports various scripts based on
Chinese characters.  Other interests are typesetting Vietnamese and
Thai, fonts and font encodings, and German hyphenation patterns.

Besides TeX I'm a main developer of the FreeType library (for
rasterizing various font formats) and, which is heresy to mention
here, the maintainer of GNU troff.

Regarding hyphenation patterns, I'm especially interested in TeX
extensions which support multiple passes of applying hyphenation
patterns (or patterns which handle weighted hyphenation points), which
is essential to provide good hyphenation in German.
