Two weeks ago we launched our first bug fixing initiative for the quantal release cycle and we are happy to report that at least four new contributors helped out: Sebastian Carneiro, Siddhanathan S., Guruprasad and Bruno Ribeiro. Thanks a lot everyone!
In the last MOTU meeting we agreed on a new list of tasks, so please join us, get involved, learn about development and fix some issues with us. You can review the entire list with instructions on the Ubuntu Wiki.
We have tasks for new contributors and more experienced developers alike, and are happy to help you out if you should get stuck. Let’s make quantal really rock!
Getting involved is easy, all you have to do is read our Development Guide, particularly these chapters will help you a lot: Introduction to Ubuntu Development, Getting Set Up and How to fix a bug in Ubuntu. Next…
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. Don’t be shy and get to know us.
- 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.
