Who I am

I am a 29 year old software engineer from Lithuania.

I work at a small company Programmers of Vilnius that uses Python and Zope 3 to develop webapps.

My job since last year is to maintain, release and package SchoolTool for Ubuntu.

My Ubuntu story

I started using Linux back in 1998 while still at school, when we were compiling 2.0.38 kernel and waiting for Debian Potato... I have tried Mandriva or SuSE but always came back to Debian, and switched to Ubuntu when I got my own computer after several years working on Windows or OS X. In 2007 I went to work for POV that uses Ubuntu on all desktops and servers.

My involvement

I am packaging and maintaining around 150 packages in the SchoolTool PPA for all supported Ubuntu releases. I was working on getting them into Lucid through REVU but was late, so only 15 packages were added to universe. I have filed been filing bugs for packages already in Ubuntu and got some of them fixed.

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

SchoolTool is running in several schools so my work is production ready.

Areas of work

DanielHollbach has helped me to get some Zope packages uploaded, other people that advocated my packages in REVU were JonathanCarter, AlessioTreglia, and MatthiasKlose. I started filing needs-packaging bugs and uploading to REVU shortly before Lucid FeatureFreeze and initially did not get any reviewers, but after packages started being uploaded I did not have enough of them ready, so not much was done. Then Canonical ISD hackers have uploaded a few incompatible packages and I was trying to get them usable for SchoolTool as well, but that was not done in time for Lucid release. However we agreed with AnthonyLenton that it would be better that in the future I maintain the Zope packages.

Things I could do better

Communicating is a little difficult for me and I postpone replying to emails to tomorrow.
