Vincent Untz

When he's not procrastinating or eating ice cream, Vincent Untz shows his real face: he is an active Free Software enthusiast, GNOME lover and advocate, and openSUSE booster.

Rumours say Vincent started contributing by triaging bugs for the GNOME Bugsquad, before becoming maintainer of various GNOME modules. However, he finds it's simpler to declare he is a "touche-à-tout", working on various (some say random) areas of the desktop. Vincent is also trying to cure his coding addiction, by holding positions such as GNOME Release Manager, GNOME Foundation director.

Vincent is still pushing French as official language for GNOME, and hopes to succeed really soon now.
