Hello Everyone,

As discussed and agreed at the monthly meeting [1] for Ubuntu GNOME team,
I'd like to announce that the beginning for a recruitment process that will
start from now until the release date of Ubuntu 13.10. After that, another
round, if needed, may start.

*Ubuntu GNOME Team is recruiting*
As you may know, we are still a young project with few active contributors.
In order to improve everything, we need to grow bigger. However, grow
bigger does not really mean MORE members. We seek and need Quality over
Quantity. Having that said, it would be less helpful if we will have say 50
contributors but none of them will be available when we really need
some/few. I hope you see and understand where I'm coming form :)

*Areas that need help and support - more contributors*

   1. Development: We do have amazing, talented and skilled developers and
   we seek more for more options and features :)
   2. Testing: We are in BAD NEED to more testers. This is very important.
   I am going to ask for extra help on Ubuntu Quality Mailing List. I know
   Ubuntu GNOME Saucy is doing fine but having more testers will make the
   process much faster and better. Trust me :)
   3. Documentation and Wiki: It is true that I have built a nice area but
   I do need help. We do need more on that area.
   4. Communications and Marketing [Website, Facebook, Twitter and
   Google+]: I do have access on all of these areas but I do need help. The
   more, the better.
   5. Artwork: We have a very smart and active Artwork Team Leader but I am
   planning to bring some extra help so that we could have more options. While
   one of the Artwork guys take care of the Slide Show, Branding, etc ... the
   other one will take care of the wallpapers and some other stuff.

I did my best to narrow down these areas and come up with the 5 main
important areas. Importance is according to the sequence which means,
Artwork is less priority than Testing for example.

*Your Help is needed*

   - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/GettingInvolved
   - Please, if you are interested in any of the above, write your details
   here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/GettingInvolved/WhoWeAre
   - We need someone who stay for the long run. We are looking for people
   who stick around :) we don't want people on temporary basis.
   - This is as you know, a volunteer job. You are doing it because you are
   loving it and so passionate about. Having that said, you don't really have
   to do that if you can't for any reason. If you want to give back something
   to Ubuntu GNOME and Linux in general, that would be so kind and nice of
   you. If you can't, we totally understand that :)

Please, if you have any question, let me know!

Thank you for reading and excuse me if there are some spelling mistakes, I
am in my zombie mode and I must ZzZz right away :)
THANK YOU for choosing and using Ubuntu GNOME. Because of all of you, we
are here and this system is alive and doing well.

Special thanks to each and everyone who is contributing and participating
to this amazing system and great family!

Best Regards,
