DesktopTeam

Mission

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

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

To comply with our Mission Statement, the Desktop Team tasks are mainly to maintain and develop our desktop packages.

Maintenance

The first and most important task of the Desktop Team is maintaining our desktop packages.

We do this by:

  • Keeping up to date with the latest releases from our upstreams

  • Triaging and fixing reported bugs

  • Testing the desktop

  • Deciding which packages should compose the desktop

Development

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

We do this by:

  • Identifying key user experiences that define the desktop

  • Designing user cases for these experiences
  • Writing new project specifications to improve them

  • Developing some applications ourselves to fit the needs of the desktop

Contributing

Does this sound fun? We have many suggestions on how to get started, but here are a few important ones:

If you find yourself doing a lot of desktop work, consider joining the team!
