I work at Canonical on the Ubuntu Community Team working on cloud related topics such as juju for the world's #1 Cloud OS, Ubuntu! As part of the cloud devops team my standing order is to make Ubuntu a wonderful place to participate, so if we're not making that happen for you let me know!

I try to focus on answering community and juju tagged questions on Ask Ubuntu. Part of my job at Canonical is to help Ubuntu rock for you in the cloud, be it AWS, HP Helion Cloud, Azure, Rackspace, Dreamhost, or your own OpenStack. So if you're doing that and we're not being awesome for you then I'm your guy to help fix your problems.

I tend to mingle on other tags and SE sites as well. I like dinosaurs, hockey, tacos, and heavy metal.

Feel free to contact me via Launchpad:

comment Why doesn't Mozilla release .deb and .rpm packages for their software?
They do coordinate with Mozilla to make the release as quick as possible so we can get the PPAs ready, etc. Eventually this will be real fast -- the goal is you not have to care about whether you have the latest Mozilla products, you would already have them by the time you read about it.

The PPA is run by the Mozilla team within ubuntu, it's not run by Mozilla itself, though our team takes Mozilla's code and builds it on ubuntu as soon as it's released.
