I am a software developer from Lexington, KY, USA. I work closely with the Xubuntu team and with upstream Xfce developers to provide the best possible experience in Xubuntu. I also work across teams when the software benefits multiple communities. Hi, I'm Sean Davis, better known as bluesabre in the Ubuntu world. I am a current Ubuntu member, the Xubuntu Technical Lead, and long-time contributor to several of the core applications included with Xubuntu.

As the newly appointed Xubuntu Technical Lead, I continue to provide development support and package maintenance for the Xfce packages in Xubuntu. I have been contributing to package maintenance in Ubuntu and Debian through vairious sponsors. I currently seek upload rights of the Xubuntu package set to better support my team's development efforts and lessen the load of the already-overworked sponsors.

I, Sean Davis, apply for upload rights for the Xubuntu/Xfce package sets.

Who I am

Hi, I'm Sean Davis, better known as bluesabre in the Ubuntu world. I am a current Ubuntu member, the Xubuntu Technical Lead, and long-time contributor to several of the core applications included with Xubuntu.

As the newly appointed Xubuntu Technical Lead, I continue to provide development support and package maintenance for the Xfce packages in Xubuntu. I have been contributing to package maintenance in Ubuntu and Debian through vairious sponsors. I currently seek upload rights of the Xubuntu package set to better support my team's development efforts and lessen the load of the already-overworked sponsors.

My Ubuntu story

I started contributing to Xubuntu in 2011, reporting artwork and usability bugs for the various applications in the base Xubuntu installation. I was welcomed into the Xubuntu community where I continued to report bugs. Shortly thereafter, I began fixing bugs, incorporating new features, and even maintaining several of the Xubuntu applications.

After contributing for two years, I finally obtained my Ubuntu membership. Now I am working towards becoming a full-fledged Xubuntu Developer. With direct access to uploads, I hope to ease the burden of packaging on our current developers, and to more quickly provide stability and security updates to our userbase.
