Hi all

First the personal details:

username: ckpinguin
Full Name: Christof Kälin
City: Rüti, Switzerland
Profession: Linux administrator (RHCE/LPI2)
Company: SIX Telekurs (now) and Ferag (after 05.01.2009)
hobbies: guess what ;-) and biking
Using Fedora: Since 3 years and after doing the RHCE, I'm totally stuck here
and will not change to ubuntu for years to come!
Why I want to help:  Because I really like the attitude of the project and
the kind peole in all the forums and because there are still so many bugs
and flaws that make fedora look "too geekish" compared to ubuntu (who needs
thousands of kernel-patches to achieve the user base acceptance they have).
My strenghts: Languages (Swiss German native, English, French), bug finding

I have joined the German translation team a while ago and looking forward to
start with the work. I'd like to help fix all the old errors, if possible.
Anyway, now there's the problem, that my RSA pubkey does not seem to be
accepted (I already generated a new one and uploaded it). On the cvs
checkout I get a   "Permission denied (publickey)."
Is it possible, that my system's user name has to be the same as the Fedora
admin username (ckpinguin for me)? I don't hope so ;-)

Thanks for any help on this.
