Feeleing I had to give something back, I joined the DebianInstaller project, at first with translations and with ambitions to take the idea of a ["DebianInstallerGUI"] and turn it into reality. I have been giving a little part of my free time to the [wiki:Self:DebianInstaller D-I] effort and also other Debian subprojects.

   * http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2006/07/msg00587.html
   * use the same scheme for additions to /etc/resolv.conf as the general pppd package uses; (this also means having a separate file for the pppoe peer configuration, and not having that in the postinst)
   * make the postinst really reentrant by detecting any previous instances of pppd and killing them before rerunning
   * do not return to the main menu until actually a pppX interface is up and has an IP, or until a time out (gah, timeouts)

EddyP -- Who's that?

Hello, my name is Eddy Petrișor and I am a happy Romanian Debian user.

The family name is pronounced almost as one would pronounce in English peh-tree-shore.

Involvement in Debian

After using and learing about the Debian way and feeling satisfied with what's been done by now I decided it is time go further.

I have been giving a little part of my free time to the [wiki:DebianInstaller D-I] effort and also other Debian subprojects.
