|== About me ==
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.

== Ubuntu involvement ==
=== Community ===
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).
=== Easier MOTUing ===
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.
=== New packages ===
I've created various new packages for dapper:
* [http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker Texmaker]
* [http://jargon.tuxfamily.org JargonInformatique]
* [http://www.nongnu.org/libtranslate libtranslate]
* [http://vbaexpress.tuxfamily.org vbaexpress]
* and Xfce related packages:
* thunar plugins
* screenshooter plugin
* pyxfce (NEW in edgy)
=== MOTU Work ===
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
== Edgy plans ==
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!
