== MOTU Teams ==
The Universe repository is quite large and it is sometimes helpful to split it up into logical chunks. MOTU teams have been formed to focus on particular chunks. They are a good place to go if you have a specific software interest.

About the MOTU

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 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.
Current Freezes: None
So you want to be a MOTU?
MOTU contributors are the people who are interested in contributing to Ubuntu and are learning how to package and work in the Ubuntu development community.

There are no requirements or exams to pass to become a MOTU contributor, just a willingness to learn and a commitment to the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.
