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 D-I effort and also other Debian subprojects. I am currently in NM (stagnant because I don't seem to find the time to send my answers to my AM; Sorry Cristoph).

Current interests within Debian

Future projects

  • A Romanian custom Debian Distribution
    • installation system starts in Romanian

      • ?DebianLive/Configuration

      • multiarch live image? is is possible?
