Contributing patches, becoming a MOTU
Becoming an Ubuntu Developer was never easier.
Just start playing around with packaging tools and reading about our starting points. After that you best get in touch with friendly people who’ll help you, when you get stuck somewhere. Then it’s time to get cracking on real-life bugs and problems; we categorized some of them on this page. You’ll surely find something easy.
We finally reviewed our review process for new packages / patches and we have much less latency there now. This overview shows you contributions in three categories: Patches for packages in main, universe and new packages.
Also we’ll have a MOTU Q&A session in #ubuntu-motu on Friday (Aug 24th) at 12:00 UTC. If you have any problems or questions, just join the channel and we’ll help you get going.
To make Ubuntu a better place, start today. :-)
