Subject Introduction
Date Sun, 19 Jun 2011 16:02:33 GMT
Hi everyone,

I'd like to introduce myself for those you did not know me yet.

My name is Peter Junge, originally from a small town near Hamburg in 
Germany, but today living and working in Beijing. I'm with the OOo 
community since the very beginning, as I have been a Quality Assurance 
Engineer at Sun Microsystems' StarOffice team during the time when went public.

In 2006 I quit at Sun and moved to Beijing with my wife. Later that 
year, I joined Beijing RedFlag 2000 (not the same as Red Flag Linux), 
who are developing a product called RedOffice, a derivative of OOo. I 
started as a Quality Assurance Instructor, but later mostly worked on 
the inter-cultural challenges of contributing to an open source 
community. In 2008 I have been one of the main organizers of the Conference in Beijing.

Since 2009 I'm attending the OpenDocument Format TC at OASIS, first for 
RedFlag 2000. Since I quit them in late 2009 I'm maintaining my (not 
very active) membership as an individual in that TC.

In October 2010 I became the OOo Marketing Project Lead and have been a 
remote member of the team that has been organizing the OOoCon 2010 in 
Budapest. I also have been remotely organizing a booth of the OOo 
community at the CeBIT 2011 in Hanover. A couple of days ago I have been 
quitting as lead of the Marketing Project due to lack of time.

Looking forward to work with all of you, hoping that OOo is able to keep 
a fair amount of it's own culture at Apache. I guess it's going to be 
exiting times. So far OOo was mostly a European community, but with the 
ASF there will be a significant shift towards the US. As well, there 
will be a growing number of Chinese engineers around. Great to see OOo 
to become more international, which implies a lot of inter-cultural 

Best regards,
