Who I am

I'm author of ReText editor, and some smaller projects and libraries. In real life, I'm student at Mathematics department of Moscow State University.

My Ubuntu story

I've been using Ubuntu since version 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), and I started contributing last summer (retext changelog dates back to Mon, 13 Jun 2011).

My involvement

I'm mostly involved with maintaining my apps and their dependency stack. I've also been contributing to Python-related packages and modules.

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

I'm the primary maintainer of these packages (I do most of the maintenance work in Debian):

  • retext

  • python-markdown

  • python-gdata

  • unity-mail

  • mathjax

Incomplete list of (other) source packages I've contributed to: gnome-icon-theme, googlecl, lightdm, light-themes, nautilus, python{,3}-defaults, python-docutils, python-gnupg, sphinx, ubuntu-packaging-guide.

Areas of work

I am:

  • maintaining my packages;
  • translating packages (I'm member of UbuntuRussianTranslators team);

  • fixing bugs in other packages;
  • helping with the Ubuntu packaging guide;
  • participating in the IRC.

Some statistics (more links can be found at DmitryShachnev page):

I'm also Debian Maintainer and member of DPMT, PAPT and JavaScript teams.

Things I could do better

I mostly write in Python and C++, so I need to improve my skills in other languages (C and Perl in the first place). My English can also be a bit improved Smile :)

Plans for the future

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).

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

What I like least in Ubuntu

I don't like when maintainers make their packages derive from Debian or upstream without any good reason. Sometimes, there even are two different and incompatible packaging versions in Debian and Ubuntu. A good example is chromium-browser package.

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.

General feedback

Dmitry has done a great job taking care of the two packages and he should totally have upload rights for them.
