Clear message

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.

My involvement

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.

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.
