I, ChadMiller, apply for upload rights for packages desktopcouch and couchdb.
Who I am
Canonical employee, working in OnlineServices. I was a DebianDeveloper ("cmiller") for a few years starting in late 1990s, and retired from it a few years ago. I like Python and long walks on the beach.
My Ubuntu story
Meatspace cheerleader and CD pusher. Reporting bugs, helping triage. My day-job in Online Services, since 9.04.
Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of
Online Services mostly, of late.
Areas of work
I'm the upstream for desktopcouch, and so also touch python-couch and couchdb source and packaging occasionally. I worked with(=against) KenVanDine quite a lot with the build-up to 10.04 release.
Things I could do better
I could run stable and test devel in virtual machines and pbuilder, instead of having patchwork machines in flux all the time.
Plans for the future
Preparing for last feature push for desktopcouch to make a 1.0: DBus signals for replication events. On-demand replication. Exclusion/inclusion DBus methods. Consider new couchdb libraries.
What I like least in Ubuntu
Backups. This should be something we make dead simple and we emphasize so much that users can't be ignorant of it. We are increasingly "digital", but if a hard drive is still working after only a decade it is anomalous. This is a huge problem. It may get some help this summer (with GSoC).
