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.
Current intersts within Debian
[http://packages.debian.org/ppp-udeb PPPoE automatic detection and installation within D-I].
Some things [http://users.alioth.debian.org/~eddyp-guest/darcs/ppp/ppp-2.4.4rel/debian/ppp-udeb.todo still need to be fixed] and a section about PPPoE should be added in the [http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/ installation guide].

[http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=350391 #350391 ITP: glest -- Free 3D fantasy real-time-strategy game] - a really nice game to have in Debian
- I am working on a patch for it to add big endian support, since the game is little endian now
- upstream CVS seems to be inactive :-/
I hate the default wiki theme of wiki.debian.org, so I started to work on a theme that would be [http://users.alioth.debian.org/~eddyp-guest/darcs/wiki.debian.org_theme/modern-wiki.debian.org/ more appropriate for Debian]. See some preliminary [http://users.alioth.debian.org/~eddyp-guest/darcs/wiki.debian.org_theme/screenshots/ screenshots]
I keep most of my Debian related work in [http://abridgegame.org/darcs/ Darcs] repos. [http://users.alioth.debian.org/~eddyp-guest/darcs/ My darcs repos] are public.
My favourite wishlist bugs
These are the bugs which I would really like to see fixed (and would give beers to people fixing them ).
