Contribute Ubuntu

The Ubuntu community consist of individuals and teams, working on different aspects of the distribution, giving advice and technical support, and helping to promote Ubuntu to a wider audience. For more detailed information about how to contribute, see the Contribute to Ubuntu article on the Ubuntu wiki.


Contribute by writing new software, packaging additional software, or fixing bugs in existing software.
Help produce official documentation, share the solution to a problem, or check, proof and test other documents for accuracy.
Put your creativity to best use by improving the look and feel of Ubuntu. Help design graphics and backgrounds, or themes of the next release.
Share your technical know-how with other users by joining email and discussion lists, or IRC (chat) channels and respond to users requests for help in forums.
 Local Community ("LoCo") teams
Find and join an official LoCo team near you, or get advice on how to create a team in your local community.
Ubuntu releases new versions every 6 months and many testers are needed who can report or confirm problems. If you like to be on the cutting edge of Ubuntu, consider helping!
 Bug Squad
Help make Ubuntu even better by working with bug reports to ensure they're complete, understandable and if possible, reproducable. Anyone can help!


 BrainstormUbuntu Brainstorm
Brainstorm is a special web site where everyone can participate. It is full of ideas on how to improve Ubuntu. Once ideas mature, they move on to become Specs, which are detailed blueprints of future Ubuntu features. Anyone can suggest new ideas and the community votes to show which ideas are the most important.
