Raphaël Pinson aka Raphink

I am a 23 year-old french guy, previously studying aeronautical engineering in Poitiers, France.

My first contact with Ubuntu was in January 2005 with Warty PPC. I found it interesting but at that time I chose to use Debian Sid on my PC instead and began to work on the [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/ichthux/ Ichthux] project, which is a CDD project aimed to christian users and communities. For the purpose, I had to learn to package.

As such, I was part of a Linux meeting in Valencia to work with the custom-debian group on state and the future of CDDs. There I met Mark Shuttleworth and heard about Edubuntu, that he was presenting at this conference.

In october 2005, I tried Ubuntu again and was amazed by it. I began to use Kubuntu as my main distribution and soon after to package KDE apps for Dapper.

My vision of Ubuntu

I see Ubuntu as the only Debian-based system aimed to improve the desktop Linux approach while still respecting the Debian ideology. I am a Debian fan for many reasons and I think Ubuntu is a breath of fresh air for the Debian world.

My contributions to Ubuntu


I have made a few packages for Kubuntu, to be included in the universe repository as part of Ubuntu 6.04 Dapper Drake :


I spend a lot of time on IRC channels on irc.freenode.net, helping users in #ubuntu* and #kubuntu* channels and getting helped in devel and motu channels (huhu) Wink ;) I administrate #kubuntu-fr and #kubuntu-it.

  • [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/ichthux/ Ichthux], a Custom Debian Distribution aimed to Christian users and communites, planned to be used on top of Ubuntu aswell. This project is currently hosted on Alioth.
