Creating a Community for the Ubuntu Websites


The Ubuntu website management tasks have historically been dealt with by one person, the webmaster. While there will, for the time being at least, be just one person ultimately responsible for the website, this is a plan for moving to a system where a team of people can work together to keep the website fresh and find new and interesting ways to communicate the exciting Ubuntu story.


What we will do

We will invite the community to participate in maintaining and improving the Ubuntu website in the following ways:

How we will do it


Regarding localizing, I had a plan that may or may not work in the long term - to have the website detect the user's language and if their preference isn't English but *is* a language used by one of our loco teams then add a link to the top of the page offering the user help in their own language.

If we have just one page per language and listing all of the loco teams there who speak that language it makes this possible. We can't detect what country they're in (reliably) so if we have one page per country we wouldn't be able to help them as much.
