About me

  • I am Andre and I'm a bugmaster. In the free and open source software world I spend some time on Wikimedia, GNOME and Mozilla. I live in Europe and I occasionally blog.

My work

I'm the bug wrangler at the Wikimedia Foundation since October 2012. This means I manage software bug reports and enhancements requests in the Wikimedia bugtracker (Phabricator). I "triage" and clean up reports to get them into a better state whenever needed, co-maintain the bugtracker, traditionally help describing and improving workflows and interested in common practices in bug report management, and try to save a bit of time of users, developers, maintainers, managers, release engineering, quality assurance and any other stakeholders involved in managing software bugs and feature requests. Furthermore, I am also involved in maintaining metrics about Wikimedia's technical community, and co-organize Wikimedia's participation in Google Code-In (a contest for highschool students to get involved in free software). There is a list of Phabricator tasks that I currently work on or plan to work on. I read a lot of bugmail.

(Until 09 January 2013 I just had one user account, Malyacko, for my personal and staff edits.)

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
