You know, the Ubuntu Community is fabulous. Having contributed a bit here
and there, I have gained an appreciation for most every aspect of the
community (even down to getting spam from Rosetta - which is pretty good
considering I only know one language)
Like many other contributors, Ubuntu is one of my hobbies. Developing is a
way for me to get away from things and do some real good in the world. I
enjoy tackling the tough problems, whether it's two release updates at the
same time, show stopper bugs, server issues, learning ruby, or what ever comes
next. For me, the things I miss are really the reason I want to be a
developer again. I miss reviewing new packages - and seem somehow to do one
or two here and there. I miss perusing through the sponsor queue, which I
still have bookmarked. It was real tough today when a MOTU hopeful (and
former mentee) asked me to look at a package to sponsor, I really wanted to
help him out.
I can do "my" stuff or KDE release updates and find sponsors pretty easily if
needed. There's only so much satisfaction in that. I get the most
satisfaction from helping other folks out. Which leads to the next part of
your email, what I plan on doing in the near-term.
* I am still working on KDE release updates - I plan on continuing :)
* Helping the Kubuntu team with some of the workload they are bringing back
* Get into the sponsor queue again
* Not biting off more than I can chew - to avoid burning/freaking out again.
There are other areas that still are of great interest me, but I think I'll
stick with this for now. In the time I have cooled off and taken a few steps
back, it has become very clear to me that vorian was very overextended.
Thanks for the consideration.
