Announcing help.ubuntu-se.org

One of the projects the Swedish Ubuntu LoCo has been working on this summer is a Swedish equivalent of the web site help.ubuntu.com. Being able to give someone a direct url to the (translated) documentation can sometimes help a lot. Hence I’m now very glad to be able to announce our very own…

At this point there are a few people I would like to thank. Obviously the most import contributors are our translation team, under the lead of Daniel Nylander. Without them there wouldn’t really be much to put on the site in the first place. Secondly I would also like to mention our server administrator Lars Ljung, who gave us a framework to work on by providing the initial modifications to the original XSLT templates.

If any other LoCo would like to embark on a similar project, feel free to contact us to get some pointers. While all our work are available in the Launchpad project ubuntu-se-help I’m not sure how much good it will do others in its current stage. Creating a cleaner, and better documented, structure is definitely on the todo list. Of course it would also be very interesting to hear from others who already do similar things, and from whom we perhaps could get some pointers ourself.

On a completly different note, don’t forget the Ubuntu Bug Jam in Linköping now on saturday.

Ubuntu Bug Jam in Linköping

The 3rd of October the Swedish Ubuntu LoCo will arrange a Bug Jam at Linköping University. This in correspondence with the Ubuntu Global Jam happening that weekend.

See http://ubuntu-se.org/wiki/Global_Jam for more information.

Also, happy Software Freedom Day everyone!

Hello Planet Ubuntu

Being the newly elected Team Contact for the Swedish Ubuntu LoCo I figured this would be a good time to add my blog to Planet Ubuntu and, by doing that, introduce myself to the greater Ubuntu community.

I’ve been a part of the Swedish LoCo since January 2008. Besides helping out with support, and a short tour as a forum moderator, my primary LoCo work has been done in the role as one of the server administrators. Now I look forward to whole lot of new challenges in the role as Team Contact.

Outside the LoCo I’m part of Ubuntu Bug Control, primarily doing triage on bugs related to the server team. One of my current ambitions is to get my LoCo more involved in the triage process.

At this point I would also like to introduce my running mate, and our new Team Leader, Mathias Friman. While I’ll be the one dealing with external communications and such, he will be the one responsible for our LoCo’s internal organization.

Finally I would like to thank Urban and Vulfgar, the former Team Leaders of the Swedish LoCo, for all their hard work. Thank you!

Anyway, if you want to get in touch we the Swedish Ubuntu LoCo, feel free to drop me a line!
