Testimonials for Ubuntu membership
MarcDeslauriers: The bugs Torsten files are always well done and detailed, and I have successfully sponsored a virtinst debdiff from him. I believe Torsten has the knowledge and experience necessary to be a Ubuntu member.
Torsten has done some great work contributing to Ubuntu cloud, his work to UEC presistency was great. He's always active on #ubuntu-cloud answering questions and helping. He also presented a session on Ubuntu Cloud Days (AhmedKamal)
TeTeT is very active on the cloud arena, and shows the persistence/patience/respect that are key to winning over people on UEC and Ubuntu. I am glad for the work he is doing and believe he will do great as an Ubuntu member (Hggdh)
- I've worked with Torsten primarily when he is working as a "power user" of Ubuntu. By that, I mean that in his role educating about Ubuntu, he is interested in ubuntu being polished and working well for real world users. As a result, he files bugs and contacts the developers to help that happen. It was his idea to pursue "UEC Persistency", which brings back 2 major features to 10.04 LTS.
- Torsten has done a great job in the Ubuntu world for several years now. I was impressed by his diligence more than one time. Whenever he asked technical questions, he had done his research before and his answer always was "Ok thanks, and I fixed the documentation."
