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

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

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


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
