Amber Graner has interviewed Kate
about her work as the Ubuntu Release Manger at Canonical. "My biggest personal challenge over the last year has been learning about the interactions in the user space applications and the different flavors' user interfaces. It's very challenging to figure out what the implications of a specific change are after we freeze, and to decide if it makes the product overall better or not. I expect I'll be learning for as long as I'm in this role (since the contents of a release continue to evolve), which is one of the reasons I'm enjoying myself so much. Luckily for me, the other members of release team span a wide range of different backgrounds and have been doing releases for quite a while, and are very willing to share their knowledge.
