A New Start!

At UDS-R in Copenhagen, a group of people met twice to discuss use of Ubuntu inside the enterprise. This group decided to take a three-pronged approach to moving forward.

  • We have started a new team on Launchpad for people interested in this topic. You'll find that on the Launchpad site. Please go to the team page, log in, and join!

  • We will be using the mailing list on the Launchpad page to carry on our discussions. The address of the mailing list is <enterprise-ubuntu AT lists DOT launchpad DOT net>

  • We will be working on this wiki page to make the information current and to grow the information here.

Feel free to contribute!
