Welcome to the realm of the Masters of the Universe!

Masters of the Universe (MOTUs) are the brave souls who try to keep the [ universe section] of Ubuntu in shape. This involves:

  • merging changes from Debian inside Ubuntu packages. For more information, see ["MOTU/Merging"].

  • filing and fixing bugs on Ubuntu packages, using [ Malone]. For more information, see ["MOTUBugFixing"].

  • getting new or updated packages included in Ubuntu. For more information, see ["MOTUNewSoftware"].

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.

MOTUs and MOTU Hopefuls can be reached:

The MOTU team is led by OliverGrawert (ogra) and DanielHolbach (dholbach). To see the currently active members, look at the [ launchpad team].
