Hi all,

thank you for your interest in the idea of an Ubuntero of the month. We
started with this idea in December last year: every month there is a new
Ubuntero chosen.  You can also find the Ubuntero of the month on the
dutch/Flemish planet: (sorry, text is in dutch)

We would like to translate the text for you if needed. Person of contact for
the dutch speaking Ubuntero of the moth is Akke Hoekstra, she is a team
member of Ubuntu-nl and moderator of the dutch Ubuntu-forum You can contact
her: akke[at] (Not sure if she reads this mailbox a lot) or at
this address: laacque[at] (she is very active here)

Happy to answer more questions if needed,
