Ubuntu-AU Reporting Page
Welcome to the Australian Ubuntu Team's reporting page. Every month this page should be filled with bullet points indicating the summary of some of the work you have been working on. As you work on something, try to summarise it here. A few guidelines for how to write good points here:
Keep it simple and short - single sentences are best.
- Try to summarise your work and not be over-detailed - we don't need to know specifics, just a summary of the kind of work involved
- Where possible, include relevant links.
Current Complete Report
A Team Meeting was held this month but little needed to be discussed. Attendees were sure May would bring a lot more topics to discuss after all the events surrounding the latest Ubuntu release had taken place.
April saw the release of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin and a number of release parties were held successfully to celebrate the latest release and draw attention to Ubuntu in the Australian community.
Adelaide held its release party on the 26th of April 2012 at the University of Adelaide English Language Centre in Adelaide and then a fine bar down the road.
Sydney beat Adelaide to the punch, holding their release party on Saturday the 21st of April 2012. Attended by 5 Team members at the Ampersand Cafe in Paddington. Photos available on the team flickr group.
As per usual, Peter Baker (jellywere on IRC) came to the rescue of Ubuntu users in Australia who must suffer slower download speeds than one would like. His Ubuntu CD distribution service made the new 12.04 LTS available swiftly to those in Australia who might otherwise not be able to get their hands on it. He also pointed out to the mailing list the really cool tour of Ubuntu 12.04 available at http://www.ubuntu.com/tour/en/.
