Ubuntu activities/interests

  • Packaging unpackaged programs I come across, available on my Launchpad PPA
  • Helping out with bugs whichever way I can.
  • Testing Alpha/Beta releases
  • Co-maintaining the transmission PPA.

After packaging for Ubuntu and uploading to PPA's for I while, I switched to packaging for Debian instead. After a while, I found it easier to switch my desktop to Debian unstable as well. Still think Ubuntu is a great distro though.

Packages in Debian

  • PyPE - Python Programmers Editor
  • Transgui - A great remote control for transmission-daemon
  • python-easygui - A module for simple, very easy GUI programming in Python

Pending Debian packages

  • pyspread - Python spreadsheet application. (Hanging in the NEW que.)
  • checkinstall (ITA filed, waiting for sponsored upload.)
  • lastfmlib - Last.FM C++ scrobbling library. (ITA filed, waiting for a sponsor.)
