A '''Master of the Universe''' leads a team of universe maintainers who have upload privileges and maintain packages that are kept in the universe area of ubuntu. There are about 15000 packages to care for in Hoary's universe, so if you are interested in maintaining a package for universe and have made your way through the New Member process of Ubuntu, go on and grab it (if nobody else cares for it already, else you could help him/her to keep it in shape). <<BR>>

(names in brackets are IRC nicks) Welcome to the Masters of the Universe!

Masters of the Universe (MOTUs) are the brave souls who keep the Universe and Multiverse components of Ubuntu in shape. They are community members who spend their time adding, maintaining, and supporting as much as possible the software found in Universe.

A list of MOTUs can be found on our [[http://launchpad.net/~motu|Launchpad]] team page.

Besides the MOTU there is also a large number of volunteers called ''contributors'' who are on their way to becoming MOTUs and have their work on Universe sponsored by MOTUs.
