Hey everyone,

Is there any interest in getting a beta one rolling? Initially set for
March 1st, the updated schedule is calling for March 8th. I know there is a
sprint in progress in which many of the Nusakan admins are attending, so I
am just attempting to get that portion locked down.

I have created the required wiki page for sign up located over at

Does the Release Team have any feedback?

Since this is an LTS release, the alphas were a no go; people are seeding
snap packages, some of the flavours are moving pretty fast, it would help
to get this beta on the move. I've
also signed myself up for checklist tracking for this one, so I just
need someone from the Release Team to volunteer to take care of Nusakan (as
mentioned above - the sprint may pose some issues) and cron job disabling
(the usual stuff). I know in the past (so I heard) timezones can be tricky.
For reference, I am in the PST time zone.

Ubuntu Budgie is a yes for sure, but if other flavours would like to
participate, please edit the above wiki page (or send me an email and I can
take care of it) with updated contact information if applicable and the
location for your release notes. If a representative from a flavour doesn't
respond or edit the wiki page, I'll assume that they aren't participating.

If anyone feels there are any gaps, let me know.

Thanks, everyone!
