Please check the status of this specification in Launchpad before editing it. If it is Approved, contact the Assignee or another knowledgeable person before making changes.


The aim of this spec is to discuss how we can use the location and language of the user (gathered in the installer) to inform them of their local LoCo team and other relevant resources.

This spec is also intended to discuss the validity of users opting in to be counted so we can get an idea of usage - this would be via a button in the installer.

Release Note

Locale and language settings are now used to optimise users connection to relevant resources.


It would allow us to:

Use Cases



You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.


UI Changes

Code Changes

Some new code would be needed to collect the data and trigger the use of specific settings.


No need for migration.

Test/Demo Plan

It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during CD testing, and to show off after release.

This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.

Outstanding Issues

This spec seems to be going unnoticed.

BoF agenda and discussion

Typical resources linked to


One can organize simple lookup database to map user browser settings (locale) to LoCo Team and suggest user to go Ubuntu LoCo Team site right at front page. This will work even for non-ubuntu users and help to find on-line resources before trying ubuntu, which is important in some cases and will help to make decision to switch from other OS. -- -- Agafonov 2007-10-30 22:46:23
