Ubuntu Community Manager appointed

The community surrounding Ubuntu is one of the things we’re most proud of.

Helpful to newcomers, brimming over with creativity and featuring some of free software’s most talented people. As a largely volunteer community, it’s important that we’re able to make the most of what people can offer.

Long-time free software advocate, LugRadio presenter and beardless wonder Jono Bacon has joined Canonical as Ubuntu Community Manager. So, what’s all that about? Mark Shuttleworth described it as:

“…created to help the huge Ubuntu community gain traction, creating structure where appropriate, identifying the folks who are making the best and most consistent contributions and empowering them to get more of their visions, ideas and aspirations delivered as part of Ubuntu – release by release.”

Congratulations Jono!
