Hi Mary and welcome :) Thanks for that information. I've been thinking
about this--There are a lot of efforts for diversity but its scattered
...as in, I get these via private emails or sometimes via lists (like
this :)). Would you like to create and maintain a wiki page for this
on wiki.ubuntu-women.org? IMHO, it would help a number of women.

There are many non-coding tasks that various teams could use all the
help they can get. Off the top of my head, its translation (is there
is a Dutch loco team doing this already?), designing artwork, etc...
and ofcourse testing as you mentioned :) Triage bugs with the
bug-squad [ https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad ] and here is a link to
Ara's blog on testing  [http://ubuntutesting.wordpress.com/ ]

thanks and regards,
