* While I cannot judge Toadstool's technical abilities or packaging skills, I can vouch for his community spirit. He's a regular at #ubuntu-motu, #ubuntu-bugs, and has often helped others, and kept the action lively. Always a gentleman with great manners, he defines the spirit of an Ubuntero.

Jérémie "Toadstool" Corbier
I am a 20 year-old french guy. I study telecommunications engineering in Brest, France. I am particularly interested in the current deployment of IPv6. I am also network and system administrator of the [http://resel.fr/ ResEl] association. We deal with a 500 machines students network and we provide some services such as 17 TV channels on LAN or @resel.fr Jabber accounts to our members. The whole services are powered by 12 Debian servers.
Linux and me
I have been using GNU/Linux since November 2000. My first experience was with a Debian Potato I installed on my parents' old computer. As I did not have a permanent nor efficient Internet connection at that time I had to wait for Woody release to discover a little further this world.
I use Ubuntu since Warty was released. At that time I was thrilled by this distribution because it was the first to work out of the box on my laptop. I have been an Ubuntu user since then and I have decided to help making Dapper the best Linux distro ever released.
I have organized 4 Ubuntu Install Parties (about 60 attendees each time) in my engineering school.
Packaging and developments
I am the Debian maintainer for [http://sourceforge.net/projects/wide-dhcpv6/ wide-dhcpv6], a well-programmed DHCPv6 solution. I got the first version included in Universe thanks to MOTU reviewers. I am working on a better integration of the client in the system (it will certainly be released in Debian wide-dhcpv6 version 20060322-2). I will try to get the latest version included in Dapper.
I have worked with Debian Lintian Maintainers and asked them to reserve -D and --debian options for Debian derivatives such as Ubuntu. I am now working on a Lintian patch to better include Ubuntu specific checks ([https://launchpad.net/bugs/36505 Malone #36505]). The -D switch will be used to get back to Debian behaviour.
Bug triaging and fixing
I am part of the Ubuntu BugSquad and I do my best to report and triage bugs.
I have fixed a few bugs in main and universe:
Fix unmet librsvg2-common dependency.

Fix a "/var/run is on a tmpfs" issue.
[https://launchpad.net/bugs/34122 Malone #34122]
Fix build on amd64 (and ia64 if mopac7 could be built on this arch).
[https://launchpad.net/bugs/36421 Malone #36421]
Fix a "/var/run is on a tmpfs" issue.
[https://launchpad.net/bugs/34409 Malone #34409]

Upstream patch adaptation
[https://launchpad.net/bugs/32900 Malone #32900]
I spend a lot of time on #ubuntu-fr, #ubuntu-fr-testing, #ubuntu-bugs and #ubuntu-motu helping people as much as I can.
I am certainly not the most active translator in the French Translation Team but when I am not wandering about Malone I try to translate a few packages.
I would like to:
- Become a MOTU to help maintaining Universe and stop bothering MOTUs when I have got a tiny patch.
- Package a few missing applications.
- Help new packagers on #ubuntu-motu and REVU.
- Get a little more involved in the French Translation Team.
- Spread Ubuntu everywhere.
