<toddc> TEAM NEWS
<toddc>  over to Scott_ev
<scott_ev> ah, thanks
<scott_ev> I know some of you are taking steps toward applying for Ubuntu membership.  I'll make this as plain as I can - if you aren't contributing to Ubuntu you won't be accepted.  Working locally with your LoCo helps, yes, but it's just not enough.  Generally thay are looking for consistent contributions for at least 6 months.
<scott_ev> When I decided to get serious I started helping with the Ubuntu Weekly News.  The UWN is always looking for people to help.  Earlier today I contacted them and I'll be writing summaries again.  They said there is room for summary writers right now.  Most of the work on the UWN is done on Saturdays and Sundays and can be done on your time since everything is done in Google Docs.
<scott_ev> They'll email out links to articles that need to be summarized in Friday night then you'd write a summary and post it.  You can contact the team at #ubuntu-news or by email at editor.ubuntu.news@ubuntu.com
<scott_ev> Here are some links to help if you want to be involved with the UWN:
<scott_ev> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter/Join
<scott_ev> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter/StyleGuidelines
<scott_ev> https://docs.google.com/document/d/18ZbtFHQq6uMj7iuRLd11VH8V5Uc_FA0IfgiRUcbMbQk/edit?pli=1
<scott_ev> There are several opportunities to get involved in something that will qualify you for membership - just keep in mind that they generally require 6 months of contributions before they'll approve you for membership.  Keep in mind, though, that everything and anything you do locally is documentable and will help.  When you look at my wiki - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/j.scott.gwin - you'll be looking at a
<scott_ev> wiki that really made the Membership Council comment.  It sounded like they hadn't seen one with that much stuff in it before.
<scott_ev> My point is that I did a variety of things; most of them local, and everything counted.  Another thing that helped was that I had, at the time, around 10,000 karma points from my work on bugs.  That's something you can do on your own time too.  Another way to contribute is to answer questions in the Ubuntu forums and document your work and/or just include a link to your responses.
<scott_ev> If you're a developer join a dev team and contribute there.  Any upstream contributions help, but they are looking more for downstream contributions directly to Ubuntu
<scott_ev> If any of you ask me for a Testamonial I'll be glad to help - just send me a link to your wiki and tell me what you've done.  I'm just starting to get involved again after a near 2-year 'vacation' so I may not be that familiar with your contributions.  It's be better if I write them a little closer to your application
<scott_ev> Here are links about Membership:

<scott_ev> That is all for tonight
