Hi All,
  First of all I would like to thank all the people that have offered to help out with development in our quest for a LTS release for the 14.04.
Sorry I haven't had time to reply individually, I have had a pretty busy couple of weeks and am just catching up on the backlog now.

There are a few areas prospective developers can contribute to Ubuntu GNOME
1. Fixing bugs in the current development release
2. SRU'ing fixed bugs back to the current stable release (this will become particularly important next cycle with the LTS)
3. Updating packages in the current development release
4. Packaing updates and fixing bugs in the Gnome3-team PPA's, 3.10.x for Saucy, and now packaging 3.11.x for Trusty

I have now created a new launchpad team for people that contribute towards ubuntu gnome development, this team is meant to serve a bridge
between the other teams that get upload access (gnome3-team for the PPA's and Ubuntu-gnome-dev for the main archive).


I invite everyone who is serious about contributing to Ubuntu GNOME to join this team and associated mailing list.

I am still trying to flesh out how we will keep track of the masses of contributions I am sure you will all bring, but it will be done through
Launchpad in some form or another. More details on this will be posted to the mailing list in the coming week.

In the meantime, feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions either by email or via IRC on #ubuntu-gnome
