|| ||Announcing Ubuntu LoCo Teams|
|| ||Thu, 27 Jan 2005 04:37:21 +0100|
Many people ask for ways that they can give back to the Ubuntu project
or participate in the community. One great way to do this is through
promote Ubuntu in your local community!
To help with this, we are pleased to announce the creation of Local
Community Teams (LoCo Teams) to promote the use, adoption, and
localization of Ubuntu.
Ubuntu's philosophy states that:
Every computer user should be able to use their software in the
language of their choice.
This means that we need advocacy, promotion, documentation, support,
and (of course) translations of Ubuntu, in individual languages.
It also means a geographically distributed user community for
coordinated promotion. LoCo Teams can help tackle all of these problems.
If you are interested in getting involved in a LoCo Team (or starting
your own), we can go ahead and learn more at:
We have set up a common set of domain names in the form of
ubuntu-CC.org [*]. Most of those domains are just placeholder domains,
waiting for someone to come along and take control. That could be you!
In other cases, there are already folks working on Ubuntu in a
location, country, area, or language. We will happily point
ubuntu-CC.org to those web sites and your mailing lists.
Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions or would
like to get involved!
[*] CC stands for "country code" -- the last two letters on
country-specific URLs. If necessary, we can also create other
domains for communities which don't easily associate with a country
