What is a Sub-Team

  • Group of people willing to help on a specific area.

  • Need to be active : It's essential that people of the team are active. It's not necessary to be active on a daily base, but a minimal participation is necessary, so we don't have 'ghost members' in the teams. It's better to leave the team temporary if we don't have time on the short-term, and enter it again after.
  • Participation can be done by members outside the team: of course, other people can help, without the need to be part of the team. For example, you can contribute on some Wiki pages without to be part of the Wiki Team. But, if you want to do more in a more organized approach, it's better to join that specific area/team, so you can coordinate with other members.
  • Free to organize themselves : each sub-team will be responsible to organize itself as a team with the help of each member of that sub-team according to the needs, to the tasks, etc. After all, each sub-team will work for the greater good of Ubuntu GNOME.
  • Keep everyone informed of any significant changes on the sub-team by use of the general mailing list and/or the mailing list of each Sub-Team because each Sub-Team has its own mailing list.

  • Please make sure to maintain a high level of internal communications with your team. For example, if you are going for vacation or leave, if you are busy with a project or Real Life, please leave a nice and gentle note to your sub team (each sub-team has its own mailing list) OR set an auto-reply on your email client.

Ubuntu GNOME Sub-Teams


Our Newest Addition to Ubuntu GNOME Family. Joining and helping a Free Open Source Software Project (Ubuntu GNOME) should be fun and easy. For many cycles, newcomers who had never used GNU/Linux nor joined similar projects before, they had hard time. We would like to make their life much more easier. We simply came up with an idea of creating new sub-team for those newcomers. The point is, they will get their newcomer-guide and someone will explain to them the basics about Ubuntu GNOME team. Then, once they know the basics, they can make their move to one of the other areas or sub-teams of Ubuntu GNOME. We totally understand how confusing it could be at the beginning and therefore, we want to avoid that.


Ubuntu GNOME Packaging (Contributing Developers) Team for people that contribute towards Ubuntu GNOME development. This team is meant to serve a bridge between the other teams that get upload access (gnome3-team for the PPA's and Ubuntu-gnome-dev for the main archive) - See the official announcement.

Testing and Reporting Bugs

You found a bug in Ubuntu GNOME and you want to help fixing it ? You like tweaking your system, and find problems? You can't wait 6 months to try out the next version of Ubuntu GNOME? Please, help the great testing team and join Ubuntu GNOME QA Team. Please, head to Testing Section for more details about testing.

Wiki & Translation

We have full documentation system and many wiki pages - please see our wiki Map. We need people to maintain these pages and keep them up-to-date. Also, we would like to translate these pages to many other languages. Feel free to translate any page you feel important to your native language.


Our Marketing Team does 4 different tasks: (a) Artwork. (b) Marketing. (c) Communications. (d) Public Relations. If you have the needed skills and experience, this is your best chance to join this team and help spreading the word of Ubuntu GNOME and promote it. You can also contribute to make it more beautiful by improving its Artwork. So many activities you can enjoy here.
