My name is Romain Perier, I am a young system engineer with a degree of MASTER in High Performance Computing (parallel computing, distributed computing, high performance network, cloud, etc...). I started to use GNU/Linux in 2002, when I was 15. My first distro was mandrake (the old mandriva). Then I have used gentoo, open suse and finally I met kubuntu. I love kubuntu because it gets an excellent KDE integration, the community is great, and everything works perfectly with this distro. I started to contribute to kubuntu around february 2011, and it's even better than using it!
language-selector for KDE
I rewrote the KDE frontend for language-selector. Now it's fully integrated into systemsettings, no longer runs as root and it's also fully configurable, with almost the same features than gnome-language-selector.
I did a lot of packaging. I helped to package kde 4.6 and kde 4.7. I've also write packages rules from scratch for KDE 4.7 since a lot of upstream packages have been splitted. Have a look at my launchpad page, to see the full list .
The following list contains all the technical packaging tasks, I've done since February 2011 :
- New upstream release (bump)
- Packaging from scratch
- Backporting (to the actual release)
- Backporting patches
- Merges with debian (two or three packages, don't remember...)
I contribute to the phonon project. Actually I am working on the subtitles feature. I plan to add multitrack audio support in the backend
what do I plan for kubuntu ?
- Continue to do a lof of packaging
