Cities

What do the cities Maracay (Venezuela), Brussels (Belgium), Berlin (Germany), Glen Ellyn (Illinois, USA), Clarkston (Michigan, USA) have in common?

  • More than 50 inhabitants? Right…
  • Not in UTC +0800? Yep, right too…
  • Uhhh…

Yes, they had Packaging Jams there!

What Packaging Jams are you might ask? It’s a great way to get the people of your Loco Team (and LUG) involved in packaging. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/RunningPackagingJam has instructions and useful tips to started and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/HandsOn great tutorial material.

Be sure to add your event to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Events and blog about it. It’s big fun and just a great feeling to be working together with your local friends on Ubuntu.

Share the love, run a Packaging Jam in your city.

    Just for info : Brussels is the city, and Belgium the country… Even more, Brussels is the capital of Belgium, and the capital of EU as well…

    Cypher: of course it is. Sorry – fixed.

  • I was wondering why a little balloon was sitting on my house/uni when this first opened up in Akregator 🙂

    I am going to plan on doing another event, strictly a packaging jam, and hopefully get one of the original Debian Developers to show up and teach the almighty CDBS 🙂

    Bring it on, nixternal – that’d be awesome!
