I searched a long time but I couldn't easily find and/or send message to people from Quebec. This is why i decided to start the QuebecTeam.

At the end of 2005, i got sick of searching for people from Quebec interested in Ubuntu. So i found the CanadianTeam and i started to translate their pages on the FrenchTeam's wiki.

The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, most of my contribution to Ubuntu is on the QuebecTeam/WebAdminLog and of course, since i was the only one doing any work on the team, i am the new owner of the Loco-Drupal Developpement Team: https://edge.launchpad.net/~loco-drupal-dev. I also took over the Loco-Drupal project: https://edge.launchpad.net/loco-drupal. For me it is a way to put my work on ubuntu-qc.org back to the community.

It was a pleasure to build this community from the ground up, and it still is a pleasure for me to see people like FabianRodriguez, helping out and making it grow. I the near futur i think it would help a lot if they're was an easy way to find and talk to Ubunteros from my area(as well as any other areas...). As for what i see for the futur, i think we need to find a way to promote local projects, i was thinking about creating a fundation in Quebec, to enable people to give money to local projects, and of course it would really help to be able to give back tax receipts.

I started with Slackware in 1994, one of my friend, a full grown hacker introduced me to it. It was still text-based floppy install.. Ah the old days.. Anyway, i have been using Linux since 1994. I'm not a programmer(yet), but i do have some knowledge of bash scripting, php and python. I started with Slackware in 1994(i think), one of my friend, introduced me to it.

For some time now, i've been doing translation for the CanadianTeam. But in doing so, i learned that things change too quickly and it is a waste of time because there is already the FrenchTeam and i think they do a really nice work. From that perspective, i've started to wonder where are all the people from my region. I live in Quebec, and there is no QuebecTeam for the moment i write this. I found out that some of us are working with the CanadianTeam, and others are working with the FrenchTeam. I dont want to denied the fact that separating things more than they are now would be bad.

But, i think it is important to create a community where we will be able to focus our efforts towards projects which relate to Quebec. Of course this would mean to continue to work with the CanadianTeam and the FrenchTeam. We dont want to stop working with them we want to focus our efforts when we do. We need a place where we can learn about each others, and help each others. We need a community where we can work on project that relate to the Quebec only.

We need to be closer to the Quebec population so that we can advocate Ubuntu more easily. By doing so, we will have more people working on Ubuntu-Qc, Ubuntu-CA and Ubuntu-FR projects that there was without the Ubuntu-Qc Team.

I'm currently creating a web page for the QuebecTeam. It is currently at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/

I also seek others people interested to create a QuebecTeam. If you are, please contact me.
