For the 13.04 cycle a team of people got together to make sure that the standard Ubuntu Desktop works great on the Nexus 7 device. This is a great opportunity for Ubuntu as we can all refer to one device and one chipset and make sure that Ubuntu is capable of dealing with the device. This will lay the foundations for making Ubuntu ready on many other devices.
The team meets on the 16th November 2012, 16:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
On the agenda are:
- general Q&A – the team will answer all your questions,
- an overview of the current work
We are actively looking for help, we need you to make Ubuntu even better. If you like to test, work with bug reports, measure, debug or fix doesn’t matter, we need you and want you on board.
We put together documentation which should provide pointers to installing Ubuntu on the Nexus 7, how to use it, how to debug and measure certain things like power consumption or memory usage and which bugs we want to fix.
If you have a Nexus 7, plan to get one or are generally excited about the initiative, or just want to find out more, make sure you’re there. Please also let your friends now.
