Bug reports

My continued involvement in Free and Open Source software has made me file hundreds of bug reports and thousands of comments on various pieces of software that I have used and loved. Over time, I have involved myself in bug triaging to ease the developers' task. My bug reports are scattered over the web, but are for the most part contained in:

I also have a list of some of the top bugs I'm proud to have helped solve or investigate.

I maintain Pitivi's automated user interface test suite using Dogtail.

Usability and UX

Usability work, Human Interface Guidelines, ergonomics and human-computer interaction are part of my blood.

I have made various comments or usability reviews on software user interfaces (such as Evolution, PackageKit, Audacity, GRsync, Homebank, Pimlico, Tracker, GNOME Schedule, DVD95, urandr, Labyrinth, GNUmeric, Abiword, Liferea, Epiphany, etc.), filed hundreds of bug reports (see above), blogged on the matter, and designed the user interfaces of Specto and Pitivi.

Design

For some of my favorite projects, I have designed new logos and icons (when they were missing, confusing or lacking in elegance), sometimes accompanied with a new website to improve the project's image and presence on the web.

I have designed some of the icons used in UIs for Navit, Pitivi and Homebank. I have also designed logos for organizations or businesses. Here are some examples:
