Yes, we are beating the hell out of this topic. Why? Because we are looking for Ubuntu enthusiasts who are either:
- Apart of a Local Community Team (LoCo)
- Looking to join a LoCo
- Possibly interested in starting a LoCo
No matter your status we do in fact want and need your help. We are working on documenting everything, and we mean everything, about LoCo teams. Do you have questions you want answered? Well we want our documentation to answer them for you, so bring your questions! Want to know what all is involved in setting up, running, and maintaining a LoCo? Well our documentation should be able to answer those questions for you. No matter the topic, the question, or anything else you can think up, we want and need it in our LoCo documentation.
So what we, the Ubuntu LoCo Community, have done is created the Ubuntu LoCo Docs Day. What is it you might ask? It is a full day, 24 hours or more if you can stay awake that long, of documenting everything and anything LoCo. The better the LoCo documentation the easier it is for new enthusiasts to get involved in this wonderful Ubuntu community.
So when is it? I knew you were going to ask that. How does March 3rd suit you? Yes, no matter where at in the world you are at, March 3rd from 00:01 all the way unti 23:59 of that day is LoCo Doc Day.
So where is it? Worldwide dude! No really, everywhere in the world it is LoCo Doc Day on March 3rd, so no matter where you are at, that’s where it is 🙂 OK, really it is in #ubuntu-locoteams on IRC. How do I connect to IRC? Wow, you are just loaded with questions today aren’t you? You have your options, but since you are asking, here are the easy ones. X-Chat and Gaim for you GNOME/Ubuntu users and Konversation for you super-smart KDE/Kubuntu users 🙂 (/me waits for the flames). You will want to set your respective client to connect to chat.freenode.net and use port 8001 just to be secure. Don’t worry, we aren’t a bunch of silly hackers sitting in a channel waiting for you to connect so we can grab your IP and create world havoc. OK, well not all of us, just Joey and Melissa. Once you have connected to the server, most clients will respect you typing /join #ubuntu-locoteams and then pressing enter.
CALLING ALL TRANSLATORS!!! We definitely want and need you big time for this event. Not only do we want English documentation, but we also want documentation for your language. Why? Well not everyone is down with this English thing. I was raised all my life in the United States and I still suck at English. Anyways, it is easier for prospective members in your locales to read their native language. So if you can take English and convert it to <insert your language here> then you are a must 🙂
