About Me

I'm Alexandre Vassalotti, a computer science student from Quebec, Canada. I am a Ubuntu user since the 5.04 release, the Hoary Hedgehog. It was my first real introduction to a Linux system. Since then, I never stopped to enjoy learning to use it.

Contributions

Here a list of some of my contributions.

Documentation

  • UbuntuPackagingGuide: I worked with JordanMantha for creating this guide. Since I didn't really knew anything about packaging, when I started it, my contributions were mainly geared toward describing the tools packagers uses. I also wrote most of the section called Packaging with Debhelper.

Artwork

  • I did several splashes images for Ubuntu for Breezy Badger, that I posted in this thread. I also distributed the source file for the image

  • I did upstart's logo, with the help of ScottJamesRemnant. I'm quite proud of the result.

Bug Report

This is just my favorite bug reports. For the complete list, look in launchpad.

Support

I try my best to answer support requests on Launchpad. The list can be found here: https://launchpad.net/people/avassalotti/+tickets I also started a new team which is goal is to provide free support to Ubuntu users.

I also done a significant amount of support in the IRC channels.

Community

  • I started UbuntuTrivia, which is a themed quiz about anything that can be interesting.

  • When I got the time, I try my best to help on UbuntuWeeklyNews.

Future Plans

  • Debug and improve applications provided by Ubuntu. (ie. gnome-app-install, update-manager, upstart)
  • Help to coordinate the efforts between the developers.
  • Improve the existing documentation.
  • Maintain the packages in Universe and possibly in Main too.
