 * MartinPitt: An IRC seminar about [http://netz.smurf.noris.de/logs/freenode/2006/07/25/%23ubuntu-motu-school.log "How to patch source packages"] has been held in the [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/School MOTU school]. This has been turned into a nice wiki page (PatchingSources) for future reference.

 * ColinWatson: The venerable infrastructure used for setting up the keyboard and fonts on text consoles has been supplemented in Edgy with the brand new console-setup, by Anton Zinoviev. This allows the text console keyboard maps to be generated from X keymaps, which should produce much better results for people whose keyboards have not been well-supported at the console up to now (particularly those which are very different from "standard" US keyboards). You can configure it using the file `/etc/default/console-setup`. Please report teething problems in Launchpad (https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/console-setup/+bugs).

 * CraigKempson: FON were featured on the BBC Click programme recently - http://www.bbcworld.com/content/template_clickonline.asp?pageid=666&co_pageid=3 - in which they discuss their approach to business and being part of an open-source community. They only use Linux and open source software; and during the clip, they show François Legendre logging into Ubuntu on his laptop. We all belong to a community and it's good to see broadcasters making mention of this, and to see other 3rd parties with Ubuntu involved.

== Feature of the Week Ideas ==

In an effort to have the feature of the week be useful and relevant to the widest possible audience here are some guide lines to follow when writing your proposal.

 1. Try to use applications that are available via Applications -> Add/Remove... (GAI) or secondly Synaptic. These are easier for users to find.
 1. We would like to try to stay away from features that require users to use the command line or edit sensitive configuration files. This is not a strict rule, but more friendly GUI apps are easier for newer users to try. There is a greater chance of someone following your directions and making use of the app if it is easy to install.
 1. We like to focus on good apps/features that are simply lesser known. We like to give these lesser known gems there time in the lime light too.
 1. Try to provide links to the app main web site where readers can find additional information about the app.
 1. Tell the readers why the feature is so useful, maybe how it has helped you. This helps readers understand the reason the app is so great and will increase the likely hood of the reader giving it a try for themselves.
 1. Try to use simple language. This is a newsletter, not a technical API reference ;) .

 * The OEM installation mode (new in 5.10)
 * Translating menu entries using Rosetta and language packs (new in 6.06)
 * Booting from USB devices (new in 6.06)

Ideas for UWN?

Do you have an idea for what might be included in the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter?

Please edit this page with any ideas of what you want to see included in each issue. If you don't tell the team what you want to see then they won't be aware of what the thousands of UWN readers might want included either on a regular basis or from time to time.
