Felix is a top rate packager, he needed no helping hand or pointing to tutorials but managed to dive right in packaging fiddly software like the Firefox KDE integration which involved working with upstream who are not set up to work with downstreams and doing coding. He should be a MOTU for sure.

I, Felix Geyer, apply for MOTU.

Who I am

I'm 22 years old computer science student from Karlsruhe, Germany.

My Ubuntu story

My involvement

I've been using Linux since 2006 starting with Fedora Core. Then around a year later I switched to Ubuntu Feisty.
After having packaged new upstream versions of several applications for a few friends and myself, I started contributing to Ubuntu in 2009.
In May 2010 I have become a (K)Ubuntu member.

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

Areas of work

Things I could do better

I tend to be bit lazy when it comes to updating the debian/copyright file for new upstream versions.

Plans for the future

General

Keep contributing like I'm doing now and try to help new packagers (e.g. by working on the sponsorship queue and being more active in #ubuntu-motu).
I'm also planning to do more packaging work in Debian. Right now I'm working on pushing my wormux package changes to Debian and then keep co-maintaing it in Debian.

What I like least in Ubuntu

Many bugs that are ignored for a long time. I think we should encourage users more to report bugs directly upstream as we often just don't have the resources to triage and forward the bug reports.
