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. This means I manage issue reports and enhancements requests in the Wikimedia bugtracker (Phabricator). I "triage" and clean up reports to get them into a valuable state whenever needed, co-maintain the bugtracker, traditionally help describing and improving workflows and common practices in bug report management (though this is now partly done by WMF's Team Practices Group), and try to save a bit of time of users, developers, maintainers, managers, release engineering, quality assurance and all those stakeholders involved in managing software bugs and feature requests. Information on Wikimedia bug management can be found here. I'm also involved in Tech Community Metrics. (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.
