|I have added autopkgtests to makedumpfile, where there was no test before, making it easier to look for regressions.
I, Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo, apply for the upload permissions for packages makedumpfile, kexec-tools, crash.
Who I am
I am Thadeu Cascardo and I work for Canonical as member of the Ubuntu Kernel Team. Currently, I work on the next kernel for the release in development, and work on bugs for the set of packages related to kdump: makedumpfile, kexec-tools and crash. I maintain makedumpfile on Debian as well. And I am a Debian Developer.
My Ubuntu story
I have been a GNU/Linux user since 1997 and started using Debian in 2002 and contributing to Debian in 2006. I became a Debian Developer in 2012.
I have joined the Ubuntu Kernel Team in late 2016, and started working with the Stable Kernel Team packaging kernels for the Ubuntu stable releases. I have been contributing to Linux upstream since 2008.
Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of
The following URL contains the activities I've been involved, mostly commiting fixes and doing releases:
I have done lots of Linux kernel packaging, as I have uploader access for those packages. And I have done lots of uploads and merges for makedumpfile, crash and kexec-tools. But I have needed sponsorship to get those in the development distro or the SRU queue.
I have added autopkgtests to makedumpfile, where there was no test before, making it easier to look for regressions.
Here is a list of sponsored packages:
What I need to improve
I need to be more conservative on uploads to stable releases. As we want to have new upstream versions backported, more testing should be done.
