I am planning to become a MOTU member eventually. I've started with these two packages because these two are only ones that I maintain in Ubuntu (not in Debian). I'm also planning to join the Bug Control team.

For quantal+1, I plan to get three new packages into Ubuntu: pymarkups, python-roman and python-secretstorage.

Line 59: Line 70:
I don't like when people derive from Debian or upstream without any good reason. Sometimes, there even are two different and incompatible packaging version in Debian and Ubuntu. A good example is chromium-browser package. I think our level of collaboration with GNOME (and some other upstream projects), is not good enough. There are people who upload packages with patches not forwarded upstream (or even to Debian). There is no communication between the design teams, and development of new features (like control center panels or apps) is not coordinated, so we sometimes end up doing duplicate (and incompatible) work — the Indicators/AppMenu and online accounts stories are good examples.
Line 61: Line 72:
Speaking about my packages, one I like least is python-gdata because it has lots of dead and unmaintained code, and upstream is quite unfriendly. Another thing I dislike are the new vUDS-es. Though I have never participated in a “real” UDS, I think that relying on a trird-party proprietary service, that needs one to have a profile in a social network, is a no-no for an open source project.

I, Dmitry Shachnev, apply for upload rights for these packages:

  • python-markdown

  • python-keyring

  • python-secretstorage

  • python-docutils

  • sphinx

  • the qt5 packageset

Who I am

I’m author of ReText editor, and some smaller projects and libraries. In real life, I’m 19-year-old student at Mathematics department of Moscow State University.

My Ubuntu story

I’ve been using Ubuntu since version 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), started contributing to Ubuntu/Debian in summer 2011 (retext changelog dates back to Mon, 13 Jun 2011).

I have chosen Ubuntu because of its good hardware support and nice default interface.

Now I am maintaining lots of packages in both Debian and Ubuntu, and am active member some Debian packaging teams.

My involvement

My areas of involvement:

  1. Python modules (Docutils, Sphinx, Markdown, Nose, PyXdg, Gdata, SecretStorage, Markups);

  2. python*-defaults packages;
  3. My own apps (ReText, Unity-Mail);

  4. MathJax;

  5. Qt (I am member of Debian Qt/KDE team, co-maintaining Qt 5 packages there);
  6. Ubuntu packaging guide;
  7. Random bits of GNOME;
  8. Random syncs and merges from Debian.

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

For the Python packages in question, I am the primary maintainer. Any recent upload is done by myself.

For the Qt packages in question, here is an incomplete list of my uploads:

Areas of work

Apart from packaging, I am also:

  • translating packages (as a part of my UbuntuRussianTranslators team membership);

  • triaging bugs;
  • contributing upstream (i.e. I’ve become upstream contributor to Qt this cycle);
  • reviewing sponsorship queue items;
  • helping others in the IRC.

Things I could do better

I take very little care of documentation. Some of my packages are not documented at all (such as PyMarkups and Unity Mail).

Plans for the future

I want to become a core developer at some point in the future. I also plan to become a Debian Developer.

What I like least in Ubuntu

I think our level of collaboration with GNOME (and some other upstream projects), is not good enough. There are people who upload packages with patches not forwarded upstream (or even to Debian). There is no communication between the design teams, and development of new features (like control center panels or apps) is not coordinated, so we sometimes end up doing duplicate (and incompatible) work — the Indicators/AppMenu and online accounts stories are good examples.

Another thing I dislike are the new vUDS-es. Though I have never participated in a “real” UDS, I think that relying on a trird-party proprietary service, that needs one to have a profile in a social network, is a no-no for an open source project.
