About Me

  • Name: Siegfried-Angel Gevatter Pujals (aka RainCT)
  • Born 1991 in Germany, living in Catalonia since 2000.

  • Languages: Catalan, Spanish, English and German.
  • GNU/Linux user since 2006 (mainly only Ubuntu, but I also installed some other distros).
  • Ubuntu Member as of 29 November 2007.

  • Ubuntu Developer (MOTU) as of 29 January 2008.

  • Website: Catalan | Blog


Development Skills

I started my first website on 2004 with Word (argh!) and have since then learned XHTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, a bit of JavaScript and that everybody should hate IE :D. Then, around April 2007, I started learning Python, which has now become my favourite language.

I'm also looking into C and C++ since some time, but I haven't made much progress here yet (they aren't one of my priorities; I'll have loads of time to learn them at the university :P). Beside those I also use Bash and I've looked a little bit into Perl and Lisp (but I wouldn't really say that I know those two).

Wiki Pages

Below is a list of packaging related wiki pages that I've written:

Beside those, I've also done lots of work on the CatalanTeam pages and minor editions which I can't remember on many pages.


  • Siegfried is a very active contributor to the Catalan Ubuntu community, to the degree that he co-developed a free Trivial clone so we could enjoy it at the Ubuntu Gutsy presentation party -- Tsdgeos
  • Despite his young age, RainCT has been contributing to the CatalanTeam from the beginning: programming the team's IRC bot for #ubuntu-cat, helping the Catalan community through our mailing lists and IRC channel, reporting bugs, updating the team's wiki pages, etc. He's indeed one of the most active members of the CatalanTeam. -- AlexMuntada 2007-10-25 07:26:35

  • Siegfried is a very young but resourceful man, extremely active in our LoCo CatalanTeam. He was among the first people on IRC at #ubuntu-cat and one of the most collaborative people there. Also, he answer everything he can on our mailing list, does not miss a single release or install party and is a pretty good Ubuntu evangelist. I was shocked when he told me his intentions to become a MOTU, but he has already started to package.-- RafaelCarreras (Catalan LoCo Team Contact) 2007-10-25 14:39:40

  • I've worked with Siegfried in the creation of the python game Freevial for the community parties. I've worked with a lot of development teams and I know it's hard to find people with so much knowledge and energy (some times too strict for his age). He can be one of the greatest developers if he finds his space to run. -- CarlesOriol 2007-10-25 19:28:00

  • Siegfried has great skills, a lot of energy that uses to spread his efforts in most of the LoCo's activities. He is young, but his youth its not a burden for him at all. He is clever and clear-sighted. I'm sure he'll do a very good job as a Ubuntu member. -- JosepSànchez 2007-10-25 20:49:00

  • The enthusiasm and energy of RainCT are out of doubt. He is one of the most active members of the CatalanTeam and he has put a lot of time and effort into IRC and mailing lists helping many new (and not so new) Ubuntu users. I am sure he will do his best for Ubuntu for a long time. IvàBurgos 2020-08-15 18:00:13

  • I subscribe every opinion above about Siegfried, but I want to emphasize his self-confidence, a quality that impressed me very much given his youngness. I agree with Carles that Siegfried will add great value to the Ubuntu Community, if accepted. -- OrestesMas 2007-11-01 23:19:17

  • RainCT is a very patient person, and not only is a whirl at maintaining packages, but is a very good teacher on how to maintain packages. Ubuntu needs more people like Siegfried. -- PaulBartell 2007-11-28 06:43:28

  • Siegfried has done an extraordinary job making gbrainy packages for Debian and Ubuntu distributions. He also has been very proactive reporting bug fixes, enhancements and ideas. -- JordiMas, gbrainy main developer. 2007-11-28 15:58:33

  • I support all opinions above. Siegfried is actually one of the most passionated and talented people within our community. No doubt, he will help a lot Ubuntu project as a whole, as he has been greatly contributing to the Catalan Community. -- toniher, 2007-11-29 15:00:13

  • Siegfried has been of great assistance with packaging efforts, and is to be especially commended for his tendency to get patches applied upstream directly, rather than increasing the Ubuntu variance. Further, his contributions to the development tools have been significant, increasing productivity for all developers. -- Emmet Hikory 2007-11-29 14:52:33

  • Siegfried has introduced free speech recognition in Ubuntu by packaging Julius and compiling the VoxForge acoustic model as julius-voxforge - Thanks! -- Dann
