Creation of delegated team for 'ubuntu-unity' package set

Thank you for your interest in Unity development on Ubuntu!

On your Launchpad profile I don't see any uploads that you've made to
Ubuntu itself. Is this correct?

We appreciate everyone who works with Ubuntu, whether that's on Ubuntu
itself, or in the wider community, PPAs, etc.

However in this case you seem to be applying for permission to make
unsupervised changes to packages in Ubuntu itself. To protect Ubuntu
users, we only allow this after a person has established a track record
of making quality *supervised* uploads to Ubuntu first.

The effect would be the same - you could maintain these packages in
Ubuntu this way - only you'd need to work with an experienced mentor
until you have established a track record.

I suggest you start by preparing an initial set of *small* packaging
updates that you want to make, and then finding a sponsor for them. See for details, and if you need
any help, you can ask on the MOTU mailing list

Hope that helps!
