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: (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


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

General feedback

I sponsored a few syncs and merges for Artur and didn't find any issues with them.

Areas of Improvement

It'd be nice if you branched out into more general bug fixing; developing your own fixes.


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!

General feedback

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.

General feedback

I've recently sponsored a handful of syncs for Artur and they were all correct. Syncs aren't quite as interesting as merges for gauging competence, but my interactions with him have been good. He's been knowledgeable and helpful.

Specific Experiences of working together

Trusty syncs: 1254023, 1254038, 1254055, 1254082, 1254150

Sebastien Bacher

Similar to others, I've been sponsoring some sync requests for Artur, his bug reports are usually detailled enough and the sources were indeed good to be synced.

General Feedback

I have sponsored some sync requests for Artur and I am happy that he works on reducing the difference between Debian and Ubuntu.

Note that I have not sponsored any merges or Ubuntu-specific uploads for him (maybe only reviewed some), so I don't know how good he is at that.
