My name is Robert-André and I'm looking to become a packager for Fedora.
I'm 33 years-old Frenchman. I first tried GNU/Linux in the late 90 with Debian
and what was
then Mandrake. Back then with no Internet, I remember It was tough to get set
up and find
help. After a Windows period, I got back to Linux in 2005 with Ubuntu's Hoary
release. It was simple, almost everything worked out of the box, and I could
having to « look under the hood » to make it work.
Following what I thought was questionable relations between Ubuntu and
upstreams, and their
choices to reinvent the wheel, i decided look for alternative distributions.
First Debian which
was close to what I've been using, and then Fedora. I had some reservation
because last time I had tried one (Fedora 16, Verne), the package manager was
compared to apt-get. And this meant a lot to relearn. But I was quickly
conquered by its simplicity
and its « freshness ». And then dnf came around, it was fast and easy to use,
and I haven't left
Fedora since then.
Thanks to the French fedora-fr wiki which explains step-by-step how to make
your own package,
I've recently started to package my own things using the COPR service:
And now I'm looking to get them into Fedora. I've learned Fedora Packaging
Guidelines, and how
to use the various tool like rpmbuild, fedpkg, mock, Koji…
Here's a few of the projects I want to include:
- rclone: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1473314 This Go app
allows you to sync your
files among different Cloud services. I had to unbundled it so it spawned a
dozen of new packages
to build (see the dependencies).
- qdirstat: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1476201 It's an app
that allow you to track
how your disk space is used, like k4dirstart, but written in Qt5.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1475962 This driver enables
video hardware acceleration for VP9 decoding on Skylake/Kabylake platforms.
Since I proposed my packages, I've also started to do other reviews:
- libcbor: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1474694
- clustersos: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1476438
- danmaQ: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1471806
- libsemigroups: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1476085
- tpm2-abrmd: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1475228
So if you like my work so far, please consider sponsoring me for the packaging
