3. A complete description of your contributions to Ubuntu
- Proud user since version 7.04. My favorite was Hardy Heron 8.04.
- Today I use Ubuntu 22.04 on an old MacBook and on several Raspberry Pis supporting my sideways projects.
- I am a member of the Ubuntu Greek Facebook group. It has approximately 8000 members.
- I am a member of the Greek Loco team and Translation team. Not very active lately. I translate upstream.
- I started using GNOME since day one (version 2.18). I became GNOME translation coordinator on September 2014. The GUI was 90%+ fully translated for more than 10 past versions.
- I write articles about Ubuntu (mostly in Greek) on my site. There are articles about other major FOSS projects, some based on Ubuntu server.
- Attended many release parties in Athens and in Thessaloniki (11.04, 12.10). Lately I hosted one for 22.10. Attended Ubuntu Hour 2017. I have been to Ubuntu Summit, which maybe was the best conference I have been to.
- I represent Ubuntu in Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece. I am the key person when someone wants to host an event and invite someone to present Ubuntu.
- My contributions are visible to https://opensource.uom.gr/. I am one of the founders of the FOSS community at my University. I mostly mentor other members there. I introduce them to the Linux world through Ubuntu.
- I am a member of the organizing committee of many global conferences. Examples are GUADEC 2019 and KDE Akademy 2023.
4. Your plans and ideas for Ubuntu in the future
At the Open Source UoM community, we have a plan to create a script for installing all the necessary software for our classes. Here is my repo. When it will be ready I will move it to Open source UoM repo.
To continue this, we want to create a live ISO based on Ubuntu (maybe Kubuntu) with everything installed and working out of the box.
Of course, we have plans to promote Ubuntu to more students at our university.
Try to host more events.
