Mission statement

The Ubuntu-be team wants to grow the local ecosystem of individuals, companies, non-profits and governmental and intergovernmental institutions working with Ubuntu Linux in and very close to Belgium. To achieve this, we follow a two-pronged approach:

  1. In areas where location is key to success (example: install parties), ubuntu-be team members do the work.
  2. In areas where language is key to success (examples: documentation, online support), we refer people to their respective language project (ubuntu-nl, ubuntu-fr, ubuntu-de, ubuntu-tr, ubuntu-ku, ...).

Ubuntu-be members publish and coordinate their efforts with the different local, regional, language community and national levels involved in mind. Special attention goes to nl_be - fr_be coordination.

For the mission statement of Ubuntu itself you can take a look at:

Currently, Ubuntu-be is an informal organization of Ubuntu enthusiasts. As such, our realizations are mostly the action of willing individuals acting on their own. There is a ongoing reflexion on how to to organize ourself more effectively at BelgianTeam/TeamOrganization. Feel free to join the discussion.
