Hey everybody,

this is the fifth issue of the MOTU report - bringing you the latest
news from MOTU land.

We are proud to announce you two new MOTUs [1]:

      * GerardoDiGiacomo (astharot), our first Italian MOTU will take
        care of the Universe security team: if you're into security
        stuff and want to help out, Gerardo can surely help you get into
      * AnkurKotwal (Unfrgiven), our first Australian MOTU. He got
        excited about the MOTU world at UDU, and some weeks later, here
        he is: a new MOTU himself.

If you'd like to help out maintaining-wise, don't hesitate, hop into
#ubuntu-motu on and help forging a new, rocking,
exciting Universe. There's always a space where you can fill in your
ideas and plans.


The C++ transition [2] is nearly over, thanks to a lot of helpers: you
guys rock! (StephanHermann (\sh) rocked the buildds quite heavily. :-))


Two exciting things happened at the same time:

      * We have REVU [3] - a next-generation package review tool, which
        will enable us to better keep track of reviews and the current
        state of packages. ReinhardTartler (siretart) and friends made
        this happen. Thank you very much for this. Please help us all to
        move leftovers from MOTUNewPackages over to it and if you're a
      * we had our first review day! We got together and reviewed quite
        a lot of packages, but we're not nearly there yet. If you put
        your package up there, be sure to try to fix the missing bits
        and nag some MOTUs to review it and get it in ASAP.


There's still a lot of things to do and we invite you to be part of it,

      * C++ transition
      * MOM merges
      * reviews
      * getting stuff from UniverseCandidates in
      * <your idea here>

are just a few of our obvious goals. Become an Ubuntu maintainer and
change the world, today! :-)

Start here:

Have a nice day,
 Daniel Holbach
