Stefano Zacchiroli (born 16 March 1979) was the Debian Project Leader between April 2010 and April 2013. Succeeding Steve McIntyre, he was himself succeeded by Lucas Nussbaum in an election where he himself was no longer a candidate. Zacchiroli became a Debian Developer in 2001. After attending LinuxTag in 2004, he became more involved in the Debian community and the project itself.

Zacchiroli earned a PhD in computer science in 2007 at University of Bologna and moved to Paris Diderot University for his Postdoctoral research. He is involved into the MANCOOSI project working on the application of formal methods to the solution of complexity issues in the management of GNU/Linux distributions.

From the technical point of view, Zacchiroli has been involved in Debian mainly in the OCaml packaging and in the quality assurance team.

In April 2011 he was re-elected as project leader unopposed.[1] In April 2012 he was re-elected again, becoming the first-ever DPL to be elected three times. He is currently a director of the Open Source Initiative.[2]
