*Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is just around the corner!*

As in the past, we'd like to create a new countdown banner to share
across the web. If you would like to make a highly visible contribution
to Ubuntu, this is your chance.

Just shortly after the Beta launch (about 30 days before release) we'd
like to launch a new countdown banner that says something like "30
more days until Ubuntu 12.04 LTS" Each day the banner will decrease by
one until the release day, April 26th. On the 26th it will say something
like "It's almost here" or similar. Then when we do the release the
slide will change to "it's here!" (remember to include the apostrophe in

*How can you help?*

Create a graphic representing what you think the countdown should look
like. It is not necessary to create an entire set of images. Instead, do
a couple to demonstrate your idea. The community and Canonical staff
will choose the official banners and maybe give some guidance in case a
change is needed to polish it up. Lets aim to *get submissions in by
Monday, March 12th*. But don't wait until the end, release early,
release often, so they say.

180px wide by 150px high. No PHP or flash. We'd like to make a static,
plain image available but if the community would like to make an
animated or interactive, iframe based image using js and static content
we will gladly consider it. 

Starting at the Beta release Ubuntu changes from the code name of
"Precise Pangolin" to "Ubuntu 12.04 LTS" it would probably be
inappropriate to over-emphasize pangolin graphics.

Please attach your suggestions to the wiki page listed above. If you
have questions or would like to discuss this, please email the Web
Presence Team mailing list[1] or hop onto the IRC chat room,
#ubuntu-website on freenode.

I can't wait to see your ideas!
