Dear All,

As the subject says, this process will be the new process, aiming to
replace the current re approval process. It aims to be less formal,
more interactive and above all still keep people motivated to be
involved in the Ubuntu community.

Every team shall be known as a LoCoteam, teams that were previously
known as an “Approved LoCoteam” shall be known as a “Verified
LoCoteam”. New teams shall be a LoCoteam, teams do not have to be

The term Verified means that a  Launchpad team has been created, the
team name conforms to the correct naming standard and the team contact
has signed the Code of Conduct.

Every two years a team will present itself for a HealthCheck - This is
still beneficial to everyone involved, it gives the team a chance to
show how they are doing and also the council can catch up with the

What is needed for a HealthCheck?

Create a Wiki with the activities of the period - Name the wiki page
with Name of your team plus the YEAR example -
"LoCoTeamVerificationApplication20XX" with the below details:

Name of team

How many people are in the team

Link to your wiki page / Launchpad group page

Social Networks (if they have any of them).

Link to loco team portal page, Events page, Paste events page - this
is a good reason to encourage teams to use the team portal as all of
the information is there and saves duplication.

Photo Galleries of past events

Tell us about your team, what you do, if you have Ubuntu members in
your team, your current projects.

Guideline of what you plan on doing in the future

And any meeting logs if available.

Teams will still remain verified this is just to check in and see how
things are doing,

If you can’t make a meeting, it can be done over email/Bugs.

All in all, the process should remain pretty much the same.

If there are any questions about the new process please don’t hesitate
to discuss and ask :-)

On  behalf of the Ubuntu loco council,
