so we are sure we would like to take part in the Ubuntu community event,

but how best we can do this need to be worked out.  Perhaps we can forumate
it a bit better with some structure.  

for example!

Saturdary 10am 

Introduction to Launchpad 

11am  triaging bugs  break into groups of 2-3 people

12 pm  Logging bugs ? again in groups

1pm lunch 

2pm a few short talks - if we team up with other groups perhaps we can have
lighning talks 

3pm work on your own for a bit on projects, wiki tidying up, documentaion,
proof reading,  translations , help someone with their project 

5pm something

Sunday switch it up 

again if we invite other projects to take part in the day we can learn more
and they can also help us with Ubuntu.
