  • kitsune (Ubuntu Gutsy)
  • qtpfsgui (Ubuntu Gutsy)

Translation

Other involvement

  • I created the LAMPPIAK which was an installer for Apache, Mysql, PostGreSQL and PHP written in Bash, now it's a dead project, because I don't have enough time to work on it, and the utility of this program wasn't big enough to continue the support and the development of it.
  • Address : http://www.davromaniak.eu/index.php?category/Lamppiak

  • I maintaining since June 2006 a french written blog called "Le Blog du Davromaniak", since 2008-12-24 it changes his name in "Le site de Cyril "Davromaniak" Lavier, sysadmin ascendant geek" and might will welcome an English part.

Plans

  • I would like to help people to learn packaging, I consider packaging as a kind of art, and I would "teach" packaging to most people.
  • I also would to show the backstage of Ubuntu, with this different view, the final user can see how Ubuntu is made, and can see how much work there is behind a release.
  • Considering ubuntu-fr-party and conferences, I would continue this adventure, I take so much pleasure during conferences, and days of Ubuntu Party
  • Considering packaging, I would continue to maintain applications, and continue packaging.
  • And to be original, when I will have enough experience in Ubuntu packaging, why not trying to become a MOTU, Smile :)

Testimonials

[GauvainPocentek]: I think I know Cyril since I'm in touch with the French Ubuntu Community. I've seen him active on various sides of Ubuntu, from (great) help given to users to packaging to real life conferences. He is always deeply and truly involved in everything he does, always giving good results to what he works on. I'd be happy to see him an official ubuntu member soon Smile :)
