=3D=3D=3D Field experiment: fix an Ubuntu bug =3D=3D=3D

We want to make it easy to get involved in Ubuntu on a broad basis,
but also make it easy to just go ahead and do something as a drive-by

At UDS we talked a lot about making it easy to just go and fix a bug
that bothers you. We did a couple of improvements to our documentation
and some other bits here and there.

What I now need is your feedback. It=92d be super-sweet if you never
just went and fixed a bug in Ubuntu, you now just tried to do that. I
don=92t want to give too many instructions, because I want to see how
you go about finding docs, which tools you use, what you do to make it
happen, so the instructions are thus:

 * Wear your hardhat.
 * Remember an Ubuntu bug that bothered you or find one you=92d like to wor=
k on
 * Take notes. It=92s important that you note down what exactly you
tried to do, what worked and what didn=92t work. We want to fix the
process harder and make it super-smooth.
 * Add a comment to this blog entry or mail dholbach at ubuntu dot com
with your findings.

Thanks a bunch in advance. This is an awesome opportunity for you to
not only fix a bug in Ubuntu, but also help fix the process involved.

I=92ll report the findings in a couple of weeks.

=3D=3D=3D Call For Testing: Karmic Firefox Users (or willing to install
Karmic in a VM) =3D=3D=3D

The Ubuntu QA team issued the following call for testing on June 18th.

Following up a previous call for testing for Hardy users, we are
calling Karmic users to test the Firefox 3.6.4 upgrade.

As we wrote, Firefox 3.0 and xulrunner 1.9 are now unsupported by
Mozilla. We are going to release Firefox 3.6.4 as a minor update to
the 3.6 series in Lucid. This will also be rolled out to Hardy, Jaunty
and Karmic (along with xulrunner The update for Lucid is
quite trivial, but the update in Hardy, Jaunty and Karmic is not quite
as simple.

Also, we have added a new testcase "XulRunner Applications" aiming to
test that the applications using xulrunner keep working correctly
after the update. These applications need to be tested both in Hardy
and Karmic.

Please, check the testing instructions if you are willing to help with
this important security update.

=3D=3D=3D Upcoming M Cycle Re Approvals =3D=3D=3D

Just to clarify the LoCo Council will be contacting teams for
reapproval this cycle, they were chosen at random.  As you can imagine
the list of teams is large and this process only started last cycle.
If your team is ON THIS LIST

Then you will receive an email from us regarding the re approval
process. Every team at some stage will go through this process.

If you've any other queries just ask us, there are 6 of us on the
council and are here to help you where we can.

=3D=3D=3D LoCo Team Expiration =3D=3D=3D

If you see that your team is expiring from Launchpad and it's only
been a year, _PLEASE_ notify one of the council members, or the
council list ASAP. The council list is loco-council at
_PLEASE_ check this.

We are holding re-approvals every two years, not every year, so your
team _will_ fall off the launchpad 'approved' group if we do not take
action. This is change from years past, so the approval lengths are
not set correctly yet. In the future we will script something to take
care of this, but for now please be aware of the issue.

software that specifically relies on Microsoft Windows, however, Mike
suggests that Linux is something that any struggling school should
think about.

Matt Asay, Canonical COO, talks about the trust that is created by the
use of social media.  Matt admits, "Yes, much of social networking is
just idle chitchat. But even that chitchat helps to lay the foundation
for trust, which in turn is the key to fueling trade, trade which
makes us rich=85together."

The article points to studies that have been conducted by Nielsen and
others on just how much time and money is spent (or wasted) on

Matt also points to an arguement by Matt Ridley in the Wall Street

Lifehacker reports on the June 18, 2010, GoogleCL announcment:

Linux/Mac/Windows: Google's new utility, GoogleCL, allows you to
access a handful of Google services from any *nix command line.
Google's services are pretty easily accessible in their individual
webapps, but if you've got a hankering for the command line, this is

Having Google's services at your fingertips in the Terminal may not
sound super cool, but if you want to incorporate, say, fetching Google
Calendar events, Google contacts, Google Docs, or Picasa photos into
your scripts, GoogleCL is extremely handy (and long overdue). GoogleCL
is a python program that can access and perform a number of actions in
Blogger, Calendar, Contacts, Docs, Picasa, and YouTube.

Ubuntu users can download a .deb package and install it right away,
though Mac and Windows installation is a bit trickier.
