== Ubuntu & I ==

 * Setup [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWomen Ubuntu-Women] : Currently in the process of creating the web-site. Besides this, I admin its mailing list through which we try and create a open communication medium between people and increase the participation of women in the technical arena. To achieve this, I am trying to learn about packaging, testing and learning other technical details about Ubuntu and its relation with Debian and how they work in tandem.

 * Advocacy and [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IndianTeam Ubuntu-IN] :
 0. To increase Ubuntu-awareness in India, I had distributed my surplus Hoary CD's to many people locally and am happy to note that mostly students used it more than engineers. I plan to distribute the Breezy CD's to local school students and schools.
 1. Increase volunteer translators for Sanskrit. Main impediments are that its a classical language with '''zero''' commercial value resulting in low interest as its practically considered a dead language by many people.
 2. Action plan is := Rather than just evangelising about Ubuntu-Linux and handing out free CD's, a more focussed approach would be to target specific people (non-Linux users willing to try Ubuntu) and install/dual-boot Ubuntu for them if they cant do it themselves.
 3. Collect old computers and install Ubuntu and donate these to students/people/NGO's who cannot but new machines.
 4. With the setting up of our [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IndianTeam Ubuntu-IN] team, we plan to spread Ubuntu among local companies, Laptop and PC vendors.
 6. Increase the visibility by representing and promoting Ubuntu at local FLOSS events.
