Dear Robie,

thanks for reviewing.

I want to become "Ubuntu Contributing Developer".

The template 
offers the following choice:
<universe-contributor|MOTU|core-dev|upload rights for package(s) <X>>.

If universe-contributor does not mean "Ubuntu Contributing Developer", 
it might be helpful to update the template.

I have added ""Ubuntu Contributing Developer" to my application now.

Best regards
