Behind Ubuntu: Daniel Silverstone

Behind Ubuntu speaks with Daniel Silverstone, Ubuntu and Launchpad hacker, about his life in and out of the Ubuntu spotlight, and finds out some of this plans for development during the Edgy cycle!

I’ll be back on the Launchpad team working on various features for Launchpad to make the developers of Ubuntu have an even better time of it. We have Personal Package Archives in the pipeline — those will allow people to have their own small apt-get/synaptic compatible archives served by, and built by, Launchpad. And we have many and various other things to work on, including the much vaunted derivative distributions support. Life will be exciting for distro developers in the dapper+1 cycle. With a shortened development cycle the extra tools we can provide for them will be all the more important.
