Ubuntu, we need to make use of officially sanctioned areas. this isnt to say
we cannot have our own, but that if possible, we should work with existing
facilities. Second, by utilising the part of Ubuntu forums we have been
given, we gain access to a lot more viewers, and thus a lot more possible
contributors. If a decision is made that we need more room in the forums, or
a different structure, I am well familiar with the members of the forums
council and can do the necessary liason work to make it happen.
If you have time, please join our IRC channel and feel free to have a chat
to us in realtime about it there.
Just my two cents,
