(Re)introducing the Community Team

Canonical

on 15 April 2021

The Ubuntu community is, and always will be, a major part of the Ubuntu project. It is one of the biggest reasons all of this (gestures around) even exists. Over the past month or so, the beginnings of a new Community team has been taking shape inside Canonical with the specific purpose of serving the community. The team has four overarching goals that they have set for themselves, which will shape every task and project they embark on going forward:

  • Increase the number of contributors and foster future community leadership
  • Create a more personable, positive, and supportive community
  • Create a more effective community, where people are empowered to make things happen
  • Increase collaboration between Canonical employees and volunteers in the community

While the community team may be new, they are ready to get started with their mission. Initial plans include: scheduling community office hours  (with occasional special guests from the community and other Canonical teams),  supporting regular engagement days (e.g. Testing and Bug Days), collaborating on a community roadmap, and advocating for increased community engagement across Canonical. However, the bulk of the community team’s priorities are the priorities set by the community itself. 

So, where should they start? Join the discussion and let us know.
