Presently, due to the small number of 'known' Ubuntu enthusiasts in Zimbabwe, the mailing list is the only form of contact. We do plan to set up a web site and online forum in the future however, and hopefully once the user-base has grown sufficiently within the community, we will also be able to offer an IRC channel. Presently, due to the small number of 'known' Ubuntu enthusiasts in Zimbabwe, the mailing list and forum are the main forms of contact. We do have an active and locally-hosted Zimbabwean site however, which provides local ISO downloads, contact details and info on the local repository, among other things. Check it out on the link given above.

== Masvingo Demonstration ==
A small demonstration is planned in the Masvingo area with a proposed date of 20th October, 2007. Unfortunately, due to limited resources, attendance is limited. A small number of IT professionals, businessmen and teachers in the computer field will be invited to see Ubuntu in action and carry out a little hands-on testing. The primary focus of the event however, is to create an awareness in the area and to provide interested parties with the opportunity to ask questions about Ubuntu, Linux and Open Source software in general. The event will take place at Kyle College.

== Brochures and Hand-outs ==
Work is currently being put into the design of hard copy material that can be handed to people at demonstrations and functions. Some of this will hopefully be ready in time for the Masvingo function listed above.

Introduction

The initial goals of the team will be:

  • To bring together Ubuntu users within our local community
  • To make Zimbabweans aware that Ubuntu exists
  • To promote Ubuntu in Zimbabwe through the organisation of demonstrations and any other promotional activities
  • To assist Ubuntu users with support and advice wherever possible

Although Ubuntu has not gained wide-spread popularity in Zimbabwe (yet!), there are evidently a number of people and organisations who are keenly interested in it and some who have whole-heartedly adopted it. The starting goal of the Zimbabwe Team is to bring those people together, thereby establishing a solid base to begin building on, to promote the overall growth of Ubuntu in our local community.

If you are already an Ubuntu user in Zimbabwe and feel that you might have something to offer as a team member, please feel free to contact us.
