Stefano Zacchiroli is an Italian and French academic and computer scientist who lives and works in Paris, and a former Debian Project Leader, a position in which he served from April 2010 to 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.

In 2016, Zacchiroli founded the Software Heritage project together with Roberto Di Cosmo.[1]


In April 2011 he was re-elected unopposed as project leader.[2] He was a director of the Open Source Initiative from 2014 to 2017[3] and is currently a member of Free Software Foundation's High Priority Projects committee.[4]

In 2015, O'Reilly presented an open source award to Zacchiroli.[5]
