<polyachka> so what do you exactly do for Sugar?
<polyachka> what did you work on for 1.5 years?
<alsroot> well, I didn’t start to hard work exactly 1.5y ago, it was my first FOSS experience.. I started from packaging sugar, then participating in coding, I’m doing the same right now
<alsroot> also I’m maintaining ASLO
<polyachka> can you explain it for dummies… what exactly does it mean? As i am not a certified computer specialist 😉
<polyachka> packaging, coding and maintaining?
<alsroot> well, packaging means preparing sugar to be useful for GNU/Linux distribution users, I’m an official packager for ALTLinux(russian distro) and Mandriva, also preparing non-oficial packages for Gentoo, SuSe, Ubuntu
<alsroot> coding is just composing code, for sugar core or activities
<alsroot> and I’m also keep an eye on http://activities.sugarlabs.org/, adapting upstream AMO(mozilla addons portal) code, look how ASLO works
<polyachka> of all you have done, what is your favorite?
<alsroot> coding, I think
<polyachka> how did you get involved ? how did you hear about OLPC, Sugar, etc.?
<alsroot> I heard about OLPC, but since its not regular FOSS project, I wasn’t sure about how I can participate, when SL was organized thus regular FOSS model…
