In the Gentoo project, he is also the main author of the Gentoo Handbook.
In the SELinux community, Sven is a frequent contributor to both the reference policy project, which hosts the SELinux policy that is used by most distributions, as well as the SELinux user space project which maintains the libraries and tools to manage SELinux on a Linux system.

He keeps a close eye on security concerns and infrastructure manageability and has to stay informed about technologies and products, vendor strategy, and market evolution in the IT field.
