Re: How Are We Going to Go Around This?


Hi Svetlana,

 The unity7 maintainers is a crossover point for potential volunteers who have programming , launchpad maintenance skills and iso testing skills to keep unity7 viable during the 18.04 testing cycle. We can also use persons who can create wikis and patch links. At the current moment the maintainers team is in a holding pattern. I am waiting to hear from some of the  developers of the desktop team of what the next steps will be.  My home base is here: https://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=427

Ubuntu Development Version<https://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=427>
This forum is for the discussion of the development of the next version of Ubuntu or for discussion of testing point releases of the current LTS. Please Note: Ubuntu ...

but there are some current policy  problems in being able to officially test unity-session there. I am hoping that this will be resolved soon. At the current moment I would appreciate if persons who are interested could post there comments here: https://community.ubuntu.com/t/testing-unity7-during-18-04-cycle/841/3

Testing Unity7 during 18.04 cycle<https://community.ubuntu.com/t/testing-unity7-during-18-04-cycle/841/3>
Some teams may decide to organise themselves around official flavours, or specific narrow topics. However, as an individual you’re welcome to test whatever you like, whenever you like. It’s your time to spend, and you can choose what to spend it on. While it may sound alarming that threads are being removed about Unity 7 discussions, I’d imagine that’s just to keep focus to what the team remit is?

or here : https://community.ubuntu.com/t/unity-7-continuation-call-for-developers-and-supporters/736/19

Mostly , your feedback and testimonials are certainly most very welcome. In fact , feedback is tantamount if we are going to have a credible argument to keep unity-session viable in 18.04 universe. One main reason is there is a potential for breakage problems where persons who are running 16.04 with unity default and they  decide to upgrade to 18.04 and unity-session is not in the repos!  What will happen then? Hopefully the community will find a solution. So please .. post where you would and share where you would your ideas and feedback. When I hear word as to progress on all of this I hope to send  mail to everyone on the team so far.

Thank you and

Kind regards..

I know the team is new and all.  I'm also aware that team is mostly for
developers and I'm not a developer, but I can give feedback.  My
question is how we will do things here?  Are we going to use the Forums
for all of the discussions, use  the wki for general information, and/or
the mailing-list?

Thank you.
