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.

To become a MOTU, you must first [:NewMemberHowto:become an Ubuntu Member]. The complete process of becoming a MOTU is outlined in [:MOTU/Hopeful/Recruitment].
