The '''Comms Team''' is a group of community volunteers responsible for writing, editing, and updating the advertising of lubuntu on all media. Communication has been derived from the Latin word "communis", meaning to share. Communication requires that the communicating parties share an area of communicative commonality and this is precisely what the Lubuntu Communications Team does :)

= How to help =
Join the [[https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-comms | mailing list]] and make yourself known [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved| Getting Involved]] has how to do that. You do not need to be familiar with how to format up press releases, there are people who will gladly help you if you wish to learn. If you have a 'rough' set of notes then please put any ideas to the team. We will happily get them 'tydied' up for release! As lubuntu is still young and evolving, getting our name out and about is an important part of the project.
We are sharing almost everything about Lubuntu with the users of Lubuntu, anyone who is interested about Lubuntu and also those who might be interested soon!
