Another great release is out. I just had to count through all of the release names and can’t believe it’s actually the 14th release I installed, tested and enjoyed.

To almost all of the releases I made modest contributions (I wasn’t that much involved during the first one yet), but what always excited me even more was to see new people get on board, learn, enjoy what they’re doing and take on responsibility in making Open Source software even better.

During the Oneiric (11.10) cycle, I want to work harder on reaching out to new contributors, helping them get started and hit the ground running. If you always thought about contributing to Ubuntu or Open Source in general and haven’t started yet, Oneiric is going to be YOUR cycle!
