I did first run Linux in 2005. This was Aurox, a Polish distribution (currently commercialized). I got a kernel panic and my Aurox crashed forever. Then I heard about Ubuntu as user-friendly distro based on great Linux server system which is Debian. I bought a second HDD and I installed there Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. I ran Linux occasionally. Since December 2007 I started using Ubuntu as my main operating system on my PC.

Since March 2009 I've started learn about packaging Debian/Ubuntu packages.

=== General feedback ===

I have sponsored 6 packages for Arthur a while ago (karmic to natty), 5 of them being merges. There hasn't been any problem out of the ordinary (like fighting with broken UDD branches). I don't have much recent experience, only four sponsored syncs in saucy. I have no objection at all against reactivating his MOTU credentials, I just cannot give an explicit recommendation at this point due to lack of recent experience. Thanks Artur!

I sponsored a couple of merges and syncs for Artur and they were all of good quality, so I support his application to rejoin MOTU.

I, Artur Rona, apply for MOTU.

Name

Artur Rona

Launchpad Page

ari-tczew

Wiki Page

ArturRona

Who I am

Only what we have for free, we have to do ourselves.

This is my motto for contributing to Ubuntu.

My name is Artur and I study logistics. I'm from Tczew and my moniker is Ari - so these are components of my nickname.

My Ubuntu story

I was MOTU already since September 2010 till April 2011. Now I came back and since 15th July do some work for Ubuntu.

My involvement

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

* Reduction of difference between Debian and Ubuntu

Work done since July 2013: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6402818/ (status 12.11.2013)

Areas of work

  • Merges
  • Syncs
  • Security Uploads

Things I could do better

  • Debian packages management
  • Minimalize Ubuntu's delta
  • More help with translations

Plans for the future

General

I want to invite contributors from my country and help them with start packaging. Besides this, I want to implement Ubuntu Quick Response Strategy (my own).

What I like least in Ubuntu

I'm concerned of:

  • unactive sponsors since joined MOTU
  • too long response from sponsors for main and SRU due to many bugs subscribed


Comments

If you'd like to comment, but are not the applicant or a sponsor, do it here. Don't forget to sign with @SIG@.


Endorsements

As a sponsor, just copy the template below, fill it out and add it to this section.
