|As an Ubuntu MOTU, I try to keep the Universe in a good shape, but also try to keep close to the community by helping MOTU wannabes. Being a [:MOTU/Mentors:MOTU Mentor] is really important to me, since I was really happy to be helped by other MOTUs when I started packaging. I wish I'll be able to do the same with newcomers (Feel free to email me if you have questions about how the MOTU world works!).||As an Ubuntu MOTU, I try to keep the Universe in a good shape, but also try to keep close to the community by helping MOTU wannabes.|
Hi wiki reader!
I am Gauvain Pocentek., Ubuntu user since the Warty release. I became a MOTU during the Dapper development cycle.BR I'm an Xfce addict (have you seen the Xubuntu splash screen for Xfce? Just have a look at it, and you'll fall in love with Xubuntu too :p) and try to make Xubuntu rock.
My LP account: [https://launchpad.net/people/gauvainpocentek gauvainpocentek].
As an Ubuntu user I try to do my best helping the community, especially in live discussion on some Ubuntu irc channels (#ubuntu-fr, #ubuntu-fr-testing, #xubuntu, #xubuntu-fr).
As an Ubuntu MOTU, I try to keep the Universe in a good shape, but also try to keep close to the community by helping MOTU wannabes.
I've created various new packages for dapper:
- and Xfce related packages:
- thunar plugins
- screenshooter plugin
- pyxfce (NEW in edgy)
I've touch a bunch of universe [https://launchpad.net/people/gauvainpocentek/+packages packages], while working on:
- merges (for Edgy)
- transitions (OCaml, Xfce 4.4 panel)
- bug fixes...
I also try to clean [http://revu.tauware.de REVU] a bit, and help new packagers on #ubuntu-motu.
Main Packages worked on
I think I've touched almost all the Xfce Panel plugin just before their promotion to Main
- Thunar plugins
- exo (python-exo package)
- goffice and gnumeric multibuilds
Dapper has been a very big step for Xubuntu development, but it still needs a _lot_ of work. Keyboard and printers configuration tools, better management of launchers on the desktop (DnD from the menu), accessibility, IceWM and/or Fluxbox inclusion, stable Xfce 4.4 release packaging... That's too much for one person (hi Jani!).
So the plan is quite simple: I intend to help as much as I can on all these Xubuntu aspects, while continuing my MOTU job. I'm particularily interested in finding a way to avoid duplication between Ubuntu and Xubuntu (by working on a cdbs multibuild solution maybe). There's enough to do for each of these two DEs, no need to do the work twice!
