The Ubuntu Technical Board is responsible for the technical direction of
Ubuntu. It makes decisions on package selection, packaging policy,
installation systems and processes, kernel, X server, display management,
library versions, and dependencies. The board works with relevant teams to
establish a consensus on the right path to take, especially where diverse
elements of Ubuntu cannot find consensus on shared components. The current
Technical Board is expiring at the end of the year, and the Community
Council would like to confirm a new Technical Board, consisting of five
people, who will serve for two years. The eligibility requirements are:
- Be an Ubuntu Core Developer
- Be available during typical meeting hours [see
- Insight into the Ubuntu Development process, architecture, and technical
The Technical Board usually meets twice a month in IRC and has discussions
on its mailing list. They are current Ubuntu Core Developers with a proven
track record of activity in the community. They have shown themselves over
time to be able to work well with others and display the positive aspects
of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. They should be people who can judge
contribution quality without emotion while engaging in an
interview/discussion that communicates interest, a welcoming atmosphere,
and which is marked by humanity, gentleness, and kindness.

If this sounds like you or a person you know, please send your nominations

by the Ubuntu Development team.

be on the Technical Board.
