Who I am

I am a Canonical employee. I works for Commercial Engineering - PC & Core Taipei of Ubuntu Engineering and Services. Before I joined Canonical, I have been a member of Taipei Open Source Software User Group, Linux Taiwan and Debian Taiwan. Sometimes I joined or created open source software and free software projects, seeing https://about.me/fourdollars for details. I also maintained some Debian packages in Debian, seeing http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=fourdollars@gmail.com.

My Ubuntu story

As a community member, I created and maintained Ubuntu Traditional Chinese Group on Facebook and supported Ubuntu Taiwan Community for many years. As a Canonical employee, I physically joined UDS-{M,N,O,P}. I preloaded the customized Ubuntu systems in any kind of x86 PCs for ASUS, Dell, ECS, HP and Lenovo, and fixed many issues reported from ODMs in Ubuntu.

My involvement

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

Areas of work

My daily work in Canonical is mainly for Ubuntu OEM images, so I work on the installer, related components and the image build system, such as debian-installer, ubiquity, live-build and dell-recovery. But except Ubuntu OEM images, I also work for any kind of issues reported by Canonical OEM QA and the OEM/ODM QA, such as Linux kernel, X Window system, Freedesktop components, GNOME components and Unity components.

Things I could do better

I hope I can learn more knowledge about the package uploading process and convention in Ubuntu, and then I would like to apply to become an Ubuntu core developer.

Plans for the future

General

There are many issues from the Ubuntu community in Taiwan but there is no package developer at all. I wish I can become a MOTU to do some package relative works for the Ubuntu community in Taiwan.

What I like least in Ubuntu

I would like to deal with issues relative to traditional Chinese in Taiwan, such as the input method, text display and the installation.

I have worked with Shih-Yuan for years now, and he has proved to be pretty knowledgeable and versatile in his approach. He is also very responsive and easy to work with. As a Core developer, I fully endorse him as a MOTU. -- albertomilone 2016-03-04 20:45:47

I reviewed and sponsored several SRUs for Shih-Yuan. He's responsive to questions/requests for changes and doing good work. I recommend him for MOTU

Mario Limonciello (superm1)

I've worked with 4$ on various OEM projects over the years. He's very skilled at finding his way around packages across foundations and coming up with proper fixes. He strives to work within process and submit them as SRU's rather than taking the bandaid approach in the OEM builds. He's collaborated with me on dell-recovery for a long time and I would love to see him working on other packages in Universe as a MOTU.
