Greetings to all the Planet readers! I've become an Ubuntu member today (or was it yesterday in Americas?), and this is my first post on Planet Ubuntu.
My name's Artem Popov and I am an active member of the Russian Ubuntu Translators team. Sometimes, I also help with packaging / bugs and I intend to become a MOTU in the future.
Ubuntu is my favourite distribution for a long time now, because I believe it has many things done right from the very start. Contributing to Ubuntu is a great opportunity to gain new experience and it's always a pleasure to work with such a rocking community.
For now, I am going to continue my work on translations and packages with the MOTU team, but maybe I shall try some other ways of helping out. Fortunately, there are plenty of them!
