Welcome to the realm of the Masters of the Universe!
Masters of the Universe (MOTUs) are the brave souls who try to keep the [http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/components#head-83c417468ac62506377459c6915798cdb7a24ae2 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 [https://launchpad.net/malone Malone]. For more information, see ["MOTU/Bugs"].
getting new or updated packages included in Ubuntu. For more information, see ["MOTU/Packages/New"].
Those tasks are done by three categories of Ubuntu enthusiasts :
MOTUs: Ubuntu members who have been granted upload rights to the universe section of Ubuntu.
[:MOTU/Hopeful:MOTU Hopefuls]: People who want to become MOTUs.
[:MOTU/Enthusiasts:MOTU Enthusiasts]: People (like you?) just trying to help.
MOTUs and MOTU Hopefuls can be reached:
on IRC : #ubuntu-motu on irc.freenode.net
on their mailing list: [http://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-motu info page] and [http://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-motu/ archives].
