I am currently working to find financing for the http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca mirror which will soon contain an updated Ubuntu Mirror. While i'm writing this, we are still in the process of creating/downloading/updating an Ubuntu Mirror, but it should be completed soon. The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, i contributed everything i did for the web site by creating what is now known as [[UbuntuDrupal|Ubuntu Drupal]]. It is now maintained by someone else because with my anxiety problems i could not continue the work by myself.

 * When i installed breezy, i experienced [http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9160 bug#9160]. A fix was already commited upstream so i have nothing to do except verify if the problem is solved when the next Breezy Iso will come out.

How i got involved in the creation of the Ubuntu Quebec Team

At the end of 2005, i got sick of searching for people from Quebec interested in Ubuntu. There was the CanadianTeam and the FrenchTeam but no QuebecTeam and nothing was even close to it. So i started with the CanadianTeam, i translated their pages on the FrenchTeam's wiki. I found a few people with this approach but there was something wrong about it so i thought about starting a QuebecTeam myself. At that time i decided to wait for that. Later a suggestion from FabianRodriguez compelled me to do it; So i did, i Started the QuebecTeam with the help from DanielRobitaille, PatrickHétu and FabianRodriguez.

The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, i contributed everything i did for the web site by creating what is now known as Ubuntu Drupal. It is now maintained by someone else because with my anxiety problems i could not continue the work by myself.
