technical-board -- The Ubuntu Technical Board, which governs technical policy in Ubuntu


About technical-board

  • Deliberations between Ubuntu Technical Board members

  • Point of contact to reach the Ubuntu Technical Board

  • Open to all to subscribe, posting moderated for non-subscribers

Most decisions in Ubuntu are made directly by consensus between Ubuntu developers, discussed on the ubuntu-devel mailing list as necessary.

The technical board mailing list is intended for use only when the usual decision-making routes are inappropriate, have been exhausted, or decisiveness is otherwise required.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the technical-board Archives.
