 * KDE merges with Debian: [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kubuntu/KarmicKDEMerges|Karmic]] (only 1 package) - [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kubuntu/LucidKDEMerges|Lucid]] - [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kubuntu/MaverickKDEMerges|Maverick]]
 * All of the KDE/Qt applications I've been able to package
 * Fix for these two bugs at the end of Lucid cycle:
  * https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kubuntu-default-settings/+bug/551290

''Let us know what you worked on, with which development teams / developers you cooperated and how it worked out.''
## As a per-package uploader, please give us some insight into the package maintenance and bug situation since you're working on it.

I'm involved with the maintenance of our core KDE packages, I like to work in packaging release of KDE and in its build dependends, I started with KDE 4.2.3
I work very hard also in backporting KDE release. I am active with other non-core KDE packages that are in main like Qt libs, phonon, digikam, QtCurve, K3b, Ktorrent, etc, and all KDE build-depends.
Every development cycle starts I do many merges with Debian. I like also keeping update the KDE/Qt packages in the Universe repository.
I can do library transitions, upgrades, merges, and I can make package with cdbs and debhelper.

I would like to do more bug triage like I did in the end of the cycle of Lucid, but spare time is not enough sometimes.

Who I am

I live in Loano, a small town in Italy. I've been a regular Kubuntu user since Gutsy. I like to contribute to Kubuntu as much as my time allows. I'm a fanatic of Lost

My Ubuntu story

Kubuntu was my first Linux distribution I've installed in my computer and I never left it. After installing it, I started to study how it worked and giving support in the italian forum, I'm still doing this but in a different way, I keep now update users about what we are doing in the Kubuntu development. I writed also some wiki page in italian wiki about how Kubuntu and KDE applications works, there was none one about KDE/Kubuntu before that. I started to partecipate with Italian Marketing Team to ship CDs to people without broadband and ship stickers made by System76. Then, I started to work in the Kubuntu development and I became Kubuntu Ninjas and Kubuntu member.

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

There is no specific work for which I am proud of it. I am proud to partecipate in the development of Kubuntu. Anyway:

Areas of work

I'm involved with the maintenance of our core KDE packages, I like to work in packaging release of KDE and in its build dependends, I started with KDE 4.2.3 I work very hard also in backporting KDE release.

Things I could do better

I would like to do more bug triage like I did in the end of the cycle of Lucid, but spare time is not enough sometimes.

Plans for the future

General

I plan to keep on maintaining the core KDE packages as well as non-core KDE applications in both main and universe. I will do what I can do, like I did in the other cycles
