 * Triage [[|Desktop opportunities on Harvest]]


The Ubuntu Desktop Team aims to produce a desktop environment that is:

  • stable,
  • usable,
  • accessible,
  • attractive,
  • consistent,
  • discoverable, and
  • immediately useful.



The first and most important task of the DesktopTeam is maintaining our GNOME packages.

We do this by:

  • keeping up to date with the latest new releases
  • triaging and fixing bugs on

  • finding shiny new components we should have
  • stress-testing our favourite desktop environment
  • discuss and fix issues; and bring bring some good hackers into the team who know how different parts of the desktop work and are able to reply to some specific questions
  • create a technical place with people having good knowledge about specific desktop parts




The second task is developing the desktop to improve the user experience, both by improving the usability of our existing desktop and developing innovating new interface concepts.

We do this by:

  • identifying key user experiences that define the desktop: DesktopTeam/Experiences

  • design user stories for those experiences
  • write specifications for development projects to improve them: DesktopTeam/Specs


Our Organisation

Bug Squashing


  • GNOMEExperts will contain links to upstream mailing lists, irc channels if you have specific questions to specific Desktop modules

    • maybe we should agree on adding a tag so we know, where we are responsible
