Re-Approval Application for Catalan LoCo Team (ubuntu-cat)

ubuntucat_deg.png

The Ubuntu Catalan LoCo Team is a very active, growing group of people that supports and spreads Ubuntu amongst the Catalan speaking community. It is the most important resource of information about Ubuntu in this language. We are a very heterogeneus and varied group of people focused on spreading the free software philosophy, specially Ubuntu, and have several projects in mind that will be done by our different workgroups in the near future.

Jokes & humour

We are the first LoCo to have an "official" humour section. You can see it at: CatalanTeam/Parides.

The content it's done by us and for us, there are no copy-pasted items.

Hmm... But there are bugs - we are not perfect: if you read this (ghorxata_eng.pdf) you can see a real problem with the pointers. (Translated into english for your eyes).
