Lucid Community Team Plans

As many of you will know, I manage the Ubuntu Community Team at Canonical, which has horsemen Holbach, Castro and Planella in it. A large chunk of my job is to take into account the wide range of needs from our different stakeholders (community teams, Canonical teams, upstreams etc) and to flesh out a strategy for my team for each cycle. To do this I gather input and feedback from the team and these stakeholders and put together strategy that will guide the team’s work through the cycle. Today I want to share this strategy with you all.

Most components in this strategy includes a blueprint which itself includes a set of actions and in most cases a spec that outlines the goals for Lucid. The benefit of this approach is that you can subscribe to blueprints you are interested in and keep track of those projects as we work through them. If there are elements of these blueprints that you would like to contribute to and get involved with, do let us know. :-)

So, on with the blueprints. Please note: each of these blueprints is targeted for the Lucid cycle only and these are the blueprints that my team specifically is working on with assistance from the community – other Canonical teams are of course working on their own sets of blueprints. Also, this does not include all community blueprints: there are many blueprints that are not part of my teams expected deliverables.

As you can see, we have quite a bit to keep us occupied in this cycle. :-) If you want to watch the sausage being made, subscribe to the blueprints you are interested in,and do hang out in #ubuntu-community-team on Freenode where we work together. There you can see such exciting conversations as:

<jono> jcastro, call?
<jcastro> all set

We look forward to seeing you there! Horsemen…roll out!
