Regular Bug Fixing Initiatives
Perhaps you, like many others, got interested in Ubuntu Development, but didn’t know what to start working on? Perfect, because we have something for you. From now on we will put together regular bug fixing initiatives, so all you need to do is head over to our bug fixing initiative page, read the instructions and get involved.
We encourage you to take some time to read the docs, join us on IRC and ask all the questions you might have. We don’t bite but want to help you have a great experience learning more and making Ubuntu better.
- Read the Introduction to Ubuntu Development, a short article which explainshow Ubuntu is put together, how the infrastructure works and how we interact with other projects.
- Follow the instructions in the Getting Set Up article. A few simple commands, a registration at Launchpad and you’re ready to go.
- Check out our instructions for how to fix a bug in Ubuntu, they come with small examples that make it easier to visualise what exactly you need to do.
Find something to work on
We run regular bug fixing initiatives, where you can get started on hand-selected bugs and point out other ways to find bugs to get started with.
Get in touch
There are many different ways to contact Ubuntu developers and get your questions answered.
- Be interactive and reach us immediately: talk to us in #ubuntu-motu on irc.freenode.net.
- Follow mailing lists and get involved in the discussions: ubuntu-devel-announce (announce only, low traffic), ubuntu-devel (high-level discussions), ubuntu-devel-discuss (fairly general developer discussions).
- Stay up to date and follow the ubuntudev account on Facebook, Google+, Identi.ca or Twitter.
