Approval Application for Greek Team (ubuntu-gr)

The Greek Ubuntu LoCo team started in 2005 with a simple website and a mailing list. Since then our LoCo has become one of the largest FOSS communities in Greece. We run a website, a wiki, a mailing list, a forum and an irc channel so we can exchange ideas, promote Ubuntu and FOSS in general, support users and help the development to Ubuntu.
