This is an official call for topics for the upcoming summit in Mountain<br>View. If you have a well-defined idea for discussion or development which<br>you would like to propose for the summit, do not reply to this message, but
<br>follow the process described below.<br><br>The primary objective of the summit is to define the release goals for<br>Ubuntu 7.04, to be released in April 2007. At the summit, the development<br>team will discuss feature ideas, and create specification documents
<br>describing plans for their implementation.<br><br>Anyone is welcome to submit a topic for discussion, but only a limited<br>number of topics can be covered in the time available at the summit, so the<br>agenda will be selected from the most appropriate submissions. Topics with
<br>the following attributes are most likely to be prioritized and thus become<br>successful agenda items:<br><br> * Topics submitted by summit attendees: these are most likely to have<br> critical mass for discussion.<br>
<br> * Topics aligned with the goals of the Ubuntu project:<br> Bringing the best open source software to the masses and making it easy<br> for them to use.<br><br> * Topics aligned with the goals for the next release:
<br> Ubuntu 7.04 will be characterized by stellar hardware support and<br> leading-edge desktop technology<br><br> * Topics which are clearly explained with a rationale showing the benefit<br> to Ubuntu:<br> Your idea can only become reality if it can be readily understood by
<br> others as an important way to improve Ubuntu.<br><br> * Topics which require a substantial amount of discussion in order to plan<br> their implementation:<br> A trivial or obvious idea which does not require much forethought will
<br> not justify a slot on the agenda.<br><br>If you have an idea, it is wise to discuss it on<br><a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a> to get feedback from others before proposing
<br>it. Topics which have been discussed and rejected before, or which aren't<br>within the scope of the meeting or the project will not be accepted.<br><br>To propose a topic for the agenda:<br><br> * Visit <a href="https://launchpad.net/sprints/uds-mtv">
https://launchpad.net/sprints/uds-mtv</a><br><br> * If you are attending the summit, ensure that you are registered! This is<br> important.<br><br> * Review the list of topics which are already on the agenda<br><br> * Visit
<a href="https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+specs">https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+specs</a> and register a new<br> specification. Keep the summary short, but be very clear about the<br> scope and purpose of the project.
<br><br> * From the spec view, click "Propose for meeting agenda" to nominate it for<br> the Mountain View agenda.<br><br>The meeting organizers will review all proposals, accept the most promising<br>ones, and accept them for the agenda.
