Hi all,

I received the email below from Daniel Holbach on Friday about
expanding the concept of bug jams to include translations, packaging
and documentation. Obviously the Global Jam planned for October is a
good opportunity to encourage more contributions to documentation.

We've talked about documentation hug days in the past and I think this
is a good chance for us to put that into practice with either physical
or virtual documentation jams. I've drafted a page in the Jam
documentation section of the wiki which is based on the structure of
the other pages - feel free to improve on it or suggest amendments

Hello Matthew,

yesterday we had a meeting about the next Ubuntu Global Jam in October.
We want to extend the concept of Ubuntu Jams somewhat and to the "usual"
ones (Bugs and Packaging) we already added Translations Jams and would
like to see Doc Jams.

For folks who would like to improve Ubuntu but are not very technical
Translations Jams and Documentation Jams might be a great opportunity to
participate more directly than they used to.

Do you think that'd make sense? Do you know somebody who could help with
setting up for that? Do you have a
list of "easy tasks" that people could help out with?


Thanks a lot in advance. Please share the mail with whoever might be
interested in this! :-)

Have a great day,
