About

Ubuntu ShareIT is initiative started by [http://www.ubuntu-rs.org Ubuntu LoCo of Serbia] in goal to ensure redistribution od Ubuntu discs, since duty regulations in Serbia often make problems with Ubuntu Shipit packages. Idea is based on linking the users that are located near eachother and listed on the special page on the LoCo website.

Conception

User that want to be part of Ubuntu ShareIT first need go get forum account with username so other users can contact him/her. After that, he/she reports his/her intention to be part of ShareIT. Next step in proccess is putting the username on the page, and if the user is the first one from his/her geographic area, group dedicated for that area is being made too. If the user is former of the group and needs any of discs, one (or more) member of the closest group to his/her, sends him/her the disks.

Expected activity

Members involved in ShareIT should share disks with new members of community or other ShareIT activists, depending of abilities and current situation. The point of network is to provide possibility for all users to get copy no matter of their georgraphic position. Every user that gets his/her disks should join ShareIT and participate in it according to his/her abilities. For Example, user A give away a copy to user B (with or without refound - it's up to user to decide), and invites user B to join the network. When new user C show the need for some Ubuntu disks he/her have the network of now two users who can help. Later, user D will have tree users etc... If the user C don't have any user form his/her geographic region, he/she should find geographicly closest group and contact some member. Then new group will be formed and it's expanding too.

Ubuntu ShareIT showed some resoults in Serbia, since our community is getting larger every day partly thanks to ShareIT because all computer users that want to use Ubuntu and don't have possibility do download it, can get it trough network and become part of our community. We have in plan to redistribute Ubuntu addon CD with most wanted apps that don't exist on official CD-s for the users who can't have DVD or use APT over internet.
