Adrian Schroeter

Adrian works in Nürnberg as project manager for the SUSE and openSUSE infrastructure, esp. for the distribution build tools like the openSUSE Build Service.

The S.u.S.E. people employed him in 1999 after he wrote a tool for creating mp3 files (Krabber), and started as an installation support guy (as every new developer was forced to do at that time). He learned lots of new possible problems which users can have ("I have a problem after removing all StarOffice files" (the *.so)), so he was best prepared to start working as the SuSE desktop guy on their KDE desktop. The next years were filled with creating features for SuSE Linux, dealing with all kind of bugreports.

He does spend his time almost full-time on the project. With Andreas Jaeger and Stephan Kulow taking over the openSUSE project, he now focusses on the infrastructure parts of openSUSE, esp. the openSUSE Build Service.
