About me

Hi :)

I'm David Paleino, I was born on March 13, 1987 in a small city in southern Italy, Mazara del Vallo (also here), and since the age of 6 I've fallen in love with computers. I've started using Microsoft DOS 6, Microsoft Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, and so on, until Microsoft Windows XP. In the meanwhile, I was also tasting the beauty of GNU/Linux systems (I started using Debian since version 2.0), but I always kept a "dual-boot" system (yes, I was kinda scared of losing my files).

Since 2001 I'm a full-time GNU/Linux user, and started using Debian GNU/Linux after having tried Gentoo, RedHat, SuSE and some other distribution.

I'm actually studying Odontology (or Dentistry, call it whatever you like), at the University of Palermo. Unfortunately, there aren't (m)any open-source software for dentists.

I've also started contributing to Debian, "giving back to the community". They gave me freedom, why not helping them? ;-)

My current FOSS work

I'm starting to make a fork of OpenDental, which would run on Linux-only, because I'll really need some management software in future. And no, I don't want any virtual machine, if I can do that. Main advantages of the work over the current software (which should run also on Linux):

  • native GUI -- OpenDental currently uses Windows.Forms and own Resources which are compiled at build-time; the GUI will probably be GTK;

  • support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite -- as far as I can tell, OpenDental only supports MySQL and Oracle;

  • any Windows-related bit will be removed -- that would result in faster, smaller, cleaner, neater code;
  • whatever comes to my mind.

However, I doubt I will be able to make these components from OpenDental work:

  • Dr. Sparks' component SparksToothChart. This is a great component IMHO, just have to find out how to port it on Linux... (it's GPL-2+'ed :) )

Current work in Debian

I currently maintainsome Debian packages alone, or inside teams.

My main work is inside theDebian-Med team: my main objective would be that of "watching" and integrating into Debian open-source software related to dentists. Unfortunately, there are only small (and just a few) projects which are dead upstream or not fully working :( . I'm therefore doing general contributions to the Debian-Med CDD.

My work in Debian-Med (i.e. the packaging ofemboss-explorer) lead me to join theDebian Perl team. I've contributed some modules, done some bugfixing, and co-maintained some other modules. Now I left the Debian Perl team: I'm not a Perl hacker, and I'm not really interested in packaging modules I'll probably never use. Sorry guys ;-)

You can see an overview of my work in Debian in the DDPO page (see "Useful links" below).

Intent To Package (ITP)

Please not: I do not take any responsibility for any problem you might have by compiling these .dsc's. If they're not in Debian officially, there is a reason. Try them at your own risk.

Future expectations

My main wish is to eventually become a Debian Developer. I've applied to NM, and Andreas Tille advocated me. My current Application Manager (AM) is Bart Martens.

Thanks to...

Andreas Tille, who advocated my NM candidature.

Bart Martens, who is my current AM.

Charles Plessy, Nelson A. de Oliveira, and all the Debian-Med guys for helping me in my first packaging adventures.

Damyan Ivanov, Gregor Herrmann and other guys from the Pkg-Perl group, for the same reasons as the last sentence above.

Enrico Zini, who eventually signed my GPG key, letting me become DM (yay!) and continue my NM process ;)

Anyone on debian-mentors who helped me becoming a better maintainer.

If you believe I should thank you, for any, any reason, just drop me a mail. You should know how to contact me, sholdn't you? ;-)
