Tell us all about you!

Who am I? That’s quite a question. But let me try… My name is Oliver Burger (aka obgr_seneca) and I live in southwest Germany. At the moment I’m doing something called dual studying here. It means that about half the year I am at a University and the other half I’m at a company, developing mainly web based geographical information systems but other web applications aas well.

How/where do you contribute to Mageia? What else do you contribute to? Why?

I am an active member of the German Mandriva community MandrivaUser.de, I was a Mandriva translator since about 2007 and I was one of the packagers creating the mud third party packages.

Since MandrivaUser.de had its differences with Mandriva S.A. for quite some time, Mageia was the best thing that could have happened. “Our” distribution living on without the influence of a strange company we had to live with…

At Mageia I am team leader of the i18n team. In addition I am in web team and packaging team.
