Last Tuesday I was present at the Ubuntu Community Council meeting where my application for Ubuntu membership was under consideration. Thankfully I was near the front of a rather large queue of applicants, so I did not have to wait too long to be considered.
I nominated myself for membership on the basis of my contributions with the bugsquad and my involvement with the Ubuntu-UK team. I had a merry band of supporters from the Ubuntu-UK team pre-volunteer to support my application and rather surprisingly support from a few other people I didn’t really know on the basis of my bug and documentation efforts.
After a few moments of consideration I received three “+1s” from the Council and became a full fledged Ubuntu member. Wohoo! Thanks to all that supported my application :)
