New Chief Editor for the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter

Changes are taking place at the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter and I wanted to give everyone the heads up.

After over 2 1/2 years, and 140 issues of the UWN, I am stepping down as chief editor of the publication. I am not running off, but moving into more of a supervisory role.

Our new chief editor will need no introduction to a lot of you in the Ubuntu Community. She’s Amber Graner, and I know she’ll expand and improve our publication just as all the previous editors of the UWN have tried to do. Since joining the Ubuntu Community Amber has tirelessly worked and volunteered on many teams and projects. She has a great feel for the community, and I know she’ll do a great job with the UWN.

As our Ubuntu Community has grown, so has the UWN. The available news items, blog articles, and community team news has increase dramatically since I started working on the publication. This of course is a great thing.

This growth has it’s drawbacks too. Within our own community, as teams grow, as teams change leaders, and as teams branch off from each other, it’s makes it harder for our team to gather the community news. So, I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the best way to report your team news is to send an email to the Ubuntu News Team Mailing List.

It has been my great pleasure to work on the UWN, and with our wonderful team of volunteers. Each week they tirelessly endeavour to bring you the Ubuntu news. Very few Ubuntu teams put out a finished product each and every week. It’s one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.

Coming up in July of this year is our 200th issue of the UWN. Amber, myself, and the rest of the UWN team are already in the planning stages for this milestone issue. We will be in contact with many of our community leaders and teams for interviews, comments, and input for the issue. We hope to make it an “Issue To Remember” just like the 100th issue was.

I know the Ubuntu Community will stand behind, and assist Amber in her new adventure as chief editor of the UWN. I know I will be!!!
