Ville-Pekka Vainio

I'm a Fedora user since FC2, a Finnish Fedora GUI and Docs translator, one of the coordinators of the Finnish translation team, a Fedora RPM package maintainer and I'm also interested in FOSS hacking. I have a B.Sc. in Computer Science and I'm currently studying for an M.Sc. degree. I live in Helsinki, Finland.

Finnish translation

The wiki page for the Finnish translation team.

I can sponsor new contributors to the cvsl10n group in the Fedora Account System. Make sure you've sent an introduction mail to the fedora-trans-list mailing list before asking for sponsorship.


Packages that I maintain:

I also co-maintain some other VDR packages with Ville Skyttä.


I'm a relatively new EPEL packager (since about April 2009), Moin is the only package I maintain in EPEL. If you want to maintain some of my other Fedora packages, feel free to do so, but please add me as a co-maintainer.

Docs translation

I have translated the Release Notes for Fedora 7 and 8 into Finnish. I plan to keep doing the translations for upcoming releases as well. Any help is greatly appreciated :) If I have the time, I may also update the translations for already released versions.
