Community Council Election 2009

I have been nominated for a seat on the Community Council. The Community Council is one of the two highest governing councils in the Ubuntu community (the other being the Ubuntu Technical Board). As you can see from what I wrote up when running for the MOTU Council, I have contributed to many different areas of the community. Although I am not an expert in all of these areas, I have spent time learning enough to be able to contribute and help out. If I am elected, I feel that this knowledge will allow me to help resolve most community issues that might arise. So far, the Community Council has done a good job of governing the community and resolving issues that come up. After working with several of the members of this council, I feel that I would be very capable of working with them on the Community Council.

MOTU Council Poll February/March 2009

I have been nominated for a seat on the MOTU Council. Quoting the wiki page description, "The MOTU Council is the central place for approving new ubuntu-universe-contributors and motu team members and helping to find consensus and have a final say in conflicts."

I have worked hard in many areas of the community (as you can see from the list of teams I participate in). This experience has given me knowledge about how many of the teams work/operate, and how they fit into the big picture. I also try to stay up-to-date with all events going on in the community by subscribing to many mailing lists, following many blogs, subscribing to many people on identi.ca, and joining many different IRC channels. As a result of all of this, I feel that I generally have a good idea about what is going on in the community.

My plans for the future include:

  • Making it easier for people to begin contributing to Ubuntu
  • Developing new tools that make it easier for Developers to perform their everyday tasks
  • Improving communication between the different teams

If you have any questions or comments about anything, feel free to contact me using one of the methods described above.


  • Nathan Handler is a sincere and dedicated member of the OSS community. His contributions are prominent and well appreciated. I've had great experience working with him at the UF_Beginners_Team. He has the potential and a positive attitude towards development and is fully entitled to become an Ubuntu Contributing Developer. -- Sayak_Banerjee_(glade88)

  • It has been my pleasure to work with Nathan Handler on the Beginners Team. Nathan is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I support his application as a Ubuntu Contributing Developer and feel he will become a valued member of the development community. BodhiZazen
