Ubuntu community manager Jono Bacon writes
about a software stack that is geared towards "opportunistic developers" on his blog. The stack is based on Python and GNOME, using GTK, GStreamer, Glade, and DesktopCouch. Ubuntu developers have been adding tools like Quickly and Ground Control to integrate it more closely with features like Launchpad, Bazaar, and Personal Package Archives.
"We have been seeing a growing movement inside the Ubuntu community in helping to make Ubuntu a rocking platform for opportunistic developers. While all the components are Open Source and can be shipped on any distribution, I am really keen for Ubuntu to really optimize and integrate around the needs of opportunistic programmers and I just wanted to highlight some of the work that has happened here.
