I am forwarding a message to indlinux-group from Baishampayan Ghose
about a proposal to put together an Indian LoCo team for Ubuntu. For
details of what such a team does, please see the appended message,
the links that it includes at the end. As I had discussed the
possibility of providing Ubuntu support with various people, I think
that it is great that Baishampayan has taken this initiative.
An Ubuntu council meeting to discuss this will be held via IRC,
17.30-19.30 IST, on Tue., 3 Mar., 2006, in the #ubuntu-meeting
on Freenode (freenode.net
). It would be nice to have some discussions
on this beforehand, e.g., what kind of support can we provide for
Ubuntu, how it will be organized, what can we get out of it
Indian-language Ubuntu distros,...) etc. If you are interested, you
add yourself to the Indian LoCo team via the AddYourNameHere link in
the People section of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IndianTeam

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
We are thinking about forming a Ubuntu Local Community (LoCo) Team
for India which will officially act as the support team for all
Ubuntu related activities in India.
The main functions of the group will be --
* Act as the official contact point for everything Ubuntu in India
* Organise advocacy / technical sessions about Ubuntu
* Represent Ubuntu in all major/non-major FOSS events in India
* Look at the various Indic related issues in Ubuntu and push
into Ubuntu main
* Being a LoCo team will allow us to maintain our custom packages
Ubuntu main repos, we can use that by having a
distribute our customised packages, artwork, translations, etc.
So the main procedure to become an officially recognised team is to
put our team on the next Community Council agenda and then the
Community Council will discuss and grant us official status.
I have created a wiki page for the IndianTeam in the Ubuntu wiki,
are all invited to add your names there and edit
the wiki to add
> content. I guess we also need to discuss among ourselves before the
