Since 1994 I’m a Linux enthusiast. In the year 2000 I was installing the first commercially used Linux Systems in Switzerland’s airline industry. Since then I worked in different companies mostly in the outsourcing business.
From 2001 to 2003 I was also contributing some German translations for KDE, as well as writing two Docbook SGML documentation for TLDP.
Since approx. two years I’m working mostly with Red Hat’s RHEL and its derivatives such as CentOS. Later I also switched my desktop and notebooks from openSUSE to Fedora, for obvious reasons: Fedora is the upstream of RHEL and it is more stable.
I’m also a guy that wrote and writes some Bugzilla entries, mostly for RHN Satellite/Spacewalk. Those guys may already know me, I’ll hope they still like me
First contact to the Fedora community
My first contact with the Fedora community was at FUDCon 2010 in Zürich, Switzerland, my home town. There I recognized that it is indeed a very nice and international community with a lot of interesting people.
This encouraged me to to something for the Fedora project. What can I do? First of all, I’m having some knowledge about technical documentations, thus joining the doc-team. I also have some experience with GNU gettext and my mother tongue is german, so joining the trans-de team makes sense.
I’m a RHCE with some skills in building RPMs, lets see if I can help the project with that too.
Lets have some fun?
