April 2015 Team Reports


If your team is not making team reports, see these guidelines for how to do so.

Community Council

Developer Membership Board

Forum Council

An update from the Forums Council for April 2015

Super Moderator group

  • The Super Moderator group is working as expected. slickymaster has been promoted Forum Admin after three months in the group, filling a vacant position in the Forum Council.

  • QIII has accepted to join the Super Moderator group to replace slickymaster.

s.fox has stepped down from the Forum Council

We would like to thank s-fox for several years on the Forum Council and for all the cake (please see below). All our best wishes for future endeavors !

Mobile Forum Theme

s-fox has worked on the forums mobile theme to make it look like the regular desktop browser theme. Additional work needs to be done to create new icons, but that will be labor intensive.

Ubuntu membership via forums contributions

The community was solicited by a thread in the restricted (Ubuntu members only) area on the forums, in the open Ubuntu, Linux and OS Chat forum and a blog post.

Phone and Tablet Support

Support area for Phone and Tablet added to Specialised Support area.

Next Forum Council Meeting

As no point were raised by forums members in a very long while, it was decided to reduce the FC meeting timing from one every months to one every four months. There is an admin restricted forum where all the FC discussions take place. Reports will be filled to keep the community informed about decisions. Having a monthly meeting to only point out in the #ubuntu-meeting IRC channel what we have already been discussing among us with no one else commenting for over a year seems a bit pointless.

    • we'll be sharing on social media soon, but here first - polos and sweaters! https://www.hellotux.com/xubuntu

    • Gimp, Abiword and Gnumeric will be dropped for 15.10, LibreOffice (or parts of it) will be installed by default (result of the team vote from last week)

    • any last fixes that aren't RC for Xubuntu need to be in by then (preferably all the RC fixes as well)
    • final freeze for unseeded packages is sometime next Tuesday, anything that's not on any images can still get bugfixes until then
    • ACTION: elfy to draft an EOL announcement (with other flavors)
