I, Cesare Falco, apply for upload rights for packages:

  • btpd
  • mame
  • mess (not in Ubuntu yet, will soon need syncing from Debian)

None yet, sorry!!!

Who I am

I'm 41, living in Mantua, a small town in northern Italy. I'm currently employed as Application Developer in the ICT branch of an italian financial group.

My Ubuntu story

I've been an Ubuntu user since warty, moving from Debian. After some "private" packaging experiments, I started working as a contributor back in 2007. Time is always hard to find, but I'd like to help the community more, maybe even become a MOTU one day (but I still have so much to learn before!).

My involvement

Official maintainer for btpd and mame (formerly sdlmame) packages.

Examples of my work / Things I'm proud of

The mame package. It takes a constant effort to keep it in sync with upstream, but I've really learned a lot with it. So I'm both proud of and grateful to it!

General feedback

Cesare has been maintaining these packages for years and interactions with him now are very smooth and he takes good care of everything. I would definitely trust him with upload rights.

General feedback

I've sponsored 3 uploads for Cesare, all for the packages he's requesting PPU rights for. He seems to have a good handle on these packages and be looking after them well for several years. I've usually been able to sponsor the uploads without any questions. 671358 had quite a bit of back and forth before I was the one to finally upload it.

General feedback

Last time I sponsored an upload from Cesare was more than one year ago (mame), but I remember trusting him for mame, as I uploaded 4 times mame package for him, with no issues. I would also definitely trust him with upload rights for mame. I can't tell for btpd, as I did only one upload, more than 2 years ago.
