Unfortunately we are not exactly part of the development as the
developers are spread all round the world, but I've just been to the
Ubuntu Developer Summit in the USA where a lot of the development
processes are discussed.

Take a look at
http://community.linux.com/community/06/11/10/168227.shtml?tid=53 for an
idea of the process.

I live in Cape Town, and I'm sure a good number of us from this list do.

There aren't any core developers here but we participate in various ways
in the Ubuntu project.

Let us know when you are getting here and we can exchange contact
