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 Wikimedia's bug wrangler since October 2012. I manage issue reports and enhancements requests in Wikimedia's issue tracker (Phabricator/Bugzilla). I "triage" and clean up reports to get them into a valuable state whenever needed, keep an eye on important and urgent issues, maintain the bugtracker by adding / setting new products etc., do some Bugsquad community building, and describe and improve workflows and common practices in bug report management. All information on Wikimedia bug management can be found mw:Bug management. (Until 09 January 2013 I just had one user account, Malyacko, for my personal and staff edits. I have split this now.)

Disclaimer: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I intend 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.
