About me

I'm a developer advocate and bugmaster in the Technical Engagement team of the Wikimedia Foundation. In the FOSS world I spend some time on Wikimedia, GNOME and Mozilla. I live in Europe and I occasionally blog.

My work

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in October 2012.
My main focus has been managing software bug reports and enhancements requests in Wikimedia's issue tracker. See mw:Bugwrangler for more information.
Furthermore, I am also involved in maintaining metrics about Wikimedia's technical community and co-organized Wikimedia's participation in Google Code-In.
There is a list of things that I (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.

Contact me

If you have general questions, then you'd get a better response in public support channels, instead of sending me private emails or writing on my personal talk page. Private emails do not scale and do not help others.

I also sometimes use other services on the internet, however these services are not a good way to contact me:
