Hello Folks

The past few days the mailing list has seen a lot of activity with
people who want to contribute to Ubuntu and the Ubuntu India Loco.  So
this mail is just pointers about how to contribute

This is where the GIMP and Inkscape experts can put your creativity to
best use. The artwork team helps design graphics and backgrounds, or
themes of the next release.

For contributing to the Ubuntu Arkwork Team
If your interested in contributing to the Indian LoCo-specific Artwork

*Bug Squad*
The BugSquad is the first point of contact for the bugs filed about
Ubuntu. They assign bugs to packages, ensure that bug reports are
complete, find duplicate bug reports, recreate bugs, and forward bugs to
their upstream authors. All of these activities help the bug get fixed
and subsequently make Ubuntu even better.

For contributing to Bug Squad

*Documentation Team*
The Documentation Team is a group of community volunteers responsible
for writing, editing and updating the system documentation that ships
with the Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Edubuntu desktop operating
systems. New versions of these guides are available with each new
release of Ubuntu, and these are translated with the Rosetta translation
tool in the same manner as all of the other applications in Ubuntu.

For contributing to the Documentation Team

If you've got time to spare and can help give out community support is
various formats.

To contribute as a community support person

Anyone with the necessary technical skills can contribute to the
development of Ubuntu. If you want to learn, you can find a mentor
within the development team to help you along.

*LoCo Contributions*
This is where the Indian Team really needs contributions.  I'm looking
forward to having a release party in major cities for Lucid at least.
If more people are interested in leading the parties in their cities,
add your names to the list in the Ubuntu India website

These are my ideas and I'm looking forward to more suggestions and
participation from everyone on the list.

Warm Regards
Nigel Babu
