Please describe your experience with Debian as a user and as a contributor (Please include the information about the required contribution you made to the project you are interested in here): I use Linux extensively for three years. I use Debian for about a year. My husband introduced me to the world of FOSS and it was love at first sight. Through FOSS I realized how mutual cooperation and assistance among people enrich the world. So I decided to give my contribution and participate in this project. I took the translation and update of my native language because it is been neglected. I translated and update Debian installer for my native language.
