Line 7: Line 7:
I am currently working as an Altiris Engineer supporting and installing Altiris through ITS Communications. One of my goals as I learn Altiris is to figure out a way to get it to better work with Linux and specifically *Ubuntu. Altiris currently supports Red Hat/Fedora but nothing else. The Altiris agent works in *Ubuntu but is not the easiest to install as it requires a compile and also access to linux-headers to recompile a portion of the kernel.
Hopefully *Ubuntu can be found to work more and more with Altiris as I learn more and about the application.
Line 8: Line 10:
I am currently leading up the group that does Kubuntu Documentation and am a member of both ubuntu-docs and the kubuntu-team. I work as well on LaptopTesting and help with bug work as much as I can.
Line 9: Line 12:
I am a network administrator for a local community bank and in my spare
time I play around w/ Linux and try to understand how to do things
better.
Another interesting fact is that I wrote the Kubuntu chapter (Chapter 7) for the Official Ubuntu Book. This chapter has been included as a part of the Example Content on the DesktopCD.
Line 13: Line 14:
I am currently working with the documentation team in order to help out.
One of the joys with Ubuntu is that finally I can give back to the community
without having to learn how to program or maintain packages. Just using my
own skills I can now give back through help on Wikis and the doc team.

It is great to see lots of people working on Kubuntu Documentation finally. For the Dapper release we will have a MUCH better product. Big word of thanks to those that have been working feverishly on getting the Kubuntu Desktop Guide done. This will replace the pretty terrible userguide and getting started guide that were partially finished for Breezy. Also the server guide will be included in the Kubuntu documentation.

I have started working also on redoing the Adept User Manual that TroyWilliams worked hard on getting out for Breezy. Adept is the package manager for Kubuntu and the original spec can be found here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AdeptGuide. I currently have partially written a guide for Add/Remove Programs (adept installer) which I will be finishing shortly. After that will start with Adept Notifier/Adept Updater and then move on to Adept as that will probably take the longest to write.
I am also working on the AdeptGuide and re-writing everything as we are currently at 2.0 and there was a lot of improvments from 1.0 to 2.0. The current guide focuses on 1.0 and is way out of date. Hopefully soon I'll have some documents up and ready to go.

We have started working on Edgy documents... See KubuntuDocs/Edgy for more details.
