2016 ReVerification Application for the Greek Team (Ubuntu Greece)

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GreekTeam

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 (in maintenance), a mailing list, a forum and an irc channel. We are also active on social media so we can exchange ideas, promote Ubuntu and FOSS in general, support users and help Ubuntu development.

We almost completed (~95-98%) the translation in Greek language of Ubuntu-specific packages that come with the default Ubuntu distribution.

We organize translation meetings on IRC before every release. The main purpose for this is to help newer translators with the familiarization and knowledge of the translation process and promote cooperative working.
