Debian developer: no
IRC nickname: dholbach
What were you doing in Debian before joining Ubuntu ?
I was a user, installed it, proposed it to friends, installed it on their computers, I filed bug reports, helped out other people, but never became a 'developer'.
What are you doing for Ubuntu ?
I take care of the Ubuntu Desktop, together with Sebastien 'seb128' Bacher. Apart from that I take care of Ubuntu's community, mostly development related.
What are you doing nowadays in Debian ?
Talking to maintainers, forwarding patches, read and reply to debian-devel, answer to ITPs/RFPs, if we have the package already, stuff like that.
Can you explain the change (if any) ?
I'm not a Debian power user any more. My action radius changed with my work.
What do you think of the Debian-Ubuntu collaboration ?
I think it's great. Since the early days of utnubu I was on the list and for example tried to get new packages into Debian via Utnubu. Our processes are in the early days yet, but I think with some enthusiasm, some encouragement and some nice words we can make the world a better place.
What do you wish for the future ?
What I pointed out above, in a broader view: I'd love to see more teams growing both in Debian and Ubuntu and to see collaboration happen in a natural way. I don't believe in big amounts of policies we set up, but in personal collaboration.
Do you want to add something ?
Let's try to keep focused on working and don't let us be disappointed by some bickering few.
