Comment on bug #11813

- Helped to organize the first Hungarian Ubuntu Translation Weekend (2006-02-11/12) - since then we have Translation Weekends every month.
Presenting Ubuntu on local TV (fix.tv, Linuxportál live show): Introduction (2006-02-01), Installing and Updating (2006-02-08), Settings (2006-02-22), Multimedia (2006-03-01)

Planned contributions to Ubuntu
- MOTU packaging
- Community related stuff
I'm a 20-year-old student from Hungary. I'm spending my second year at the Technical University of Budapest (nowadays called Budapest University of Technology and Economics). I installed my first Linux distro (Debian) about 6 years ago. Then I used SuSE, Mandrake and Red Hat before sticking to Debian again (suited the most for me). Since Hoary do I use Ubuntu, and I'm very satisfied with it so far (that's why I decided to contribute in some way: I began with translating into Hungarian - GaborKelemen: thanks for your support). In the future I'd like to contribute more: packaging, testing, and some community related stuff.
