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. I am currently in [https://nm.debian.org/nmstatus.php?email=eddy.petrisor%40gmail.com NM] (stagnant because I don't seem to find the time to send my answers to my AM; Sorry Cristoph).
Current interests within Debian
[http://packages.debian.org/ppp-udeb PPPoE automatic detection and installation within D-I].
During Lenny's lifetime the [http://users.alioth.debian.org/~eddyp-guest/darcs/ppp/ppp-2.4.4rel/debian/ppp-udeb.todo rest of issues] should be sorted out
[https://alioth.debian.org/projects/debian-l10n-ro/ Debian Romanian L10N Project]; firstname.lastname@example.org, ?L10N/Romanian
[http://packages.debian.org/oolite The Oolite game]
[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 worked on a patch to add big endian support to the game, since the game is little endian now - the patch is incomplete, but is [http://www.glest.org/glest_board/viewtopic.php?p=8722#8722 available] on the upstream forum.
- upstream CVS seems to be inactive :-/
- 2007-04-26 00:57:38 : upsteam has migrated to SVN
the glest-data package should be imported in [http://wiki.debian.org/Games/SVN Debian Games' Team SVN]
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. Some of [http://users.alioth.debian.org/~eddyp-guest/darcs/ my darcs repos] are public.
- A Romanian custom Debian Disctribution
- installation system starts in Romanian
- the Romanain desktop task is selected by default
- associated live image
- myspell/ispell packages for Romanian

Fixed bugs / owed beers
