“Other than free tech support, what else should it [the Ubuntu community] be doing?”
There is a group of Canonical employees who meet each week to discuss and implement plans to be better members of the Community. Recently, we asked a small group of active contributors about their priorities for the community in the near future and long term.
As expected, there were comments about the Wiki, improving documentation in general, and having better incentives and recognition for contributors. The statement above really made us pause, and we think it’s one only the community can answer.
While we know the tech support the Ubuntu community provides is invaluable, and one of the major reasons new Linux users choose Ubuntu, we know this isn’t the community’s only role. So, what do you think the community is doing now? What do you want it to do in the future? We’re excited to learn what everyone thinks and to start this important conversation!
