Clear message

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://ubuntulinux.org/ubuntu/components universe section] of Ubuntu in shape. This involves:

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

  • filing and fixing bugs on Ubuntu packages, using [https://launchpad.net/malone malone]. For more information, see ["MOTUBugFixing"].

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

Those tasks are done by two categories of Ubuntu enthusiasts :

  • MOTUs: Ubuntu members who are 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 [https://launchpad.net/people/motu/ launchpad team].
