Joining the UWN staff

  • We can re-word this a little

As Ubuntu has grown, so have the number of related articles, blogs, teams, mailing lists, podcasts, etc., that the UWN staff reports on. These are exciting times for Ubuntu and our community, and you can help contribute by joining the Ubuntu Newsletter Team. Some ways to join or contribute are listed below. UWN mailing list: One way to get started is to join the mailing list and post an introduction. We can then help guide you on how to get started working for our publication. https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-news-team UWN IRC channel: Anyone can drop by the UWN news channel and ask how they can help. Just join #ubuntu-news on freenode and introduce yourself. Translations: Anyone can help by translating our editions into another language. We would especially like to see our worldwide network of LoCo teams get involved with translations as a way of contributing back to the community. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter/Translations
