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). Those tasks are done by two categories of Ubuntu enthusiasts :
 * '''MOTUs''': Ubuntu members who have been granted upload rights to the universe section of Ubuntu.
 * '''MOTU Hopefuls''': People (like you?) just trying to help.
