I’m a Linux user for a very long time (> 8 years) and Ubuntu user almost since the beginning (Warty Warthog). I’m currently working on Ubuntu as an Ubuntu Core Developer, mostly maintaining LTSP, LTSP-Cluster and the Edubuntu project. I’m also involved in various governance board (EMEA council, Edubuntu Council, Developer Membership Board) and helping the Ubuntu QA team (I developed the ISO tracker).

Since I joined Revolution Linux in August 2008, I’m now spending a lot of my time developing and maintaining LTSP upstream and in Ubuntu.
I’m also the current packager of iTalc in Ubuntu and various other tools that you may already have discovered through this blog.

I’m the main developer of the Ubuntu QA website which includes the QA Tracker used for ISO testing and to do some packages testing, the QA module itself doing the Launchpad integration we have and I started the Ubuntu Brainstorm which is now developed by Nicolas Deschildre.

If you want to know more about me and how I’m involved in Ubuntu, my Launchpad page is probably a good starting point.

Website updated, running on Drupal now


It has now been a long time WordPress was my only website still running on MySQL. As my server only has 256MB of RAM and serves a whole lot of other services I thought it would help to move my website to Drupal and get rid of MySQL.

So, this is the first post on the new website running Drupal 6. I’m still trying to find a way to import the old posts other than doing it by hand. So if any of you has a good script to import WordPress 2.5’s posts into a Drupal 6.x DB please send me a mail or just post a comment 🙂

I also want to use this post to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in Hardy Heron’s testing for the great job you did. All testcases were done in less than two days, upgrade testing and Windows testing included.

Until we have our first set of images to test for Intrepid’s Alpha1 I’m working on improving iTalc’s packaging.
In case you don’t know it, iTalc is the new teacher/student classroom interface used by Edubuntu.
The version I’m working on can be found in our team’s PPA. It includes Avahi support to auto-generate classrooms, LTSP in-chroot installation and is based on the latest iTalc from upstream (1.0.8).

By the way, I’ll be at FOSSCamp in Prague on the 16th and 17th (of May) discussing various subjects from QA testing, Ubuntu’s brainstorm website and of course Edubuntu, LTSP and iTalc.
