About me

Hi :)

I'm [http://www.hanskalabs.net David Paleino], I was born on March 13, 1987 in a small city in southern Italy, [wiki:Mazara_del_Vallo Mazara del Vallo] (also [wiki:Mazara_del_Vallo 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 [http://www.unipa.it 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? ;-)

Current work in Debian

I currently maintain[http://snipr.com/qa_page some] Debian packages alone, or inside teams.

My main work is inside the[http://debian-med.alioth.debian.org Debian-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 [:CustomDebian:CDD].

My work in Debian-Med (i.e. the packaging of[http://packages.qa.debian.org/e/emboss-explorer.html emboss-explorer]) lead me to join the[http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org Debian Perl team]. I've contributed some modules, done some bugfixing, and co-maintained some other modules. You can see an overview of my work in Debian in the DDPO page (see "Useful links").

Future expectations

My main wish is to eventually become a Debian Developer. I've applied, but found no one who wanted to advocate me. Unfortunately, I don't have my key signed by any DD (the nearest lives too much far away).

Thanks to...

Also this one, TODO :)
