Well folks, we are getting closer and closer to the release of Ubuntu 7.10, the Gutsy Gibbon, and it is going to rock like a good ‘un when it comes out. Now, I need to draw your attention to something that is always important when we put out a new release – Release Parties!!
When a new Ubuntu hits the streets, groups from around the world (typically our incredible LoCo Community organise release parties on the day of the release. This gives everyone a chance to get together, have some fun and celebrate another chunk of Ubuntu being born into the world. Well, the next release is Thu 18th October 2007 and it would be great to have a worldwide blanket of release parties going on.
If you like the sound of this, follow these simple steps:
- Where possible, find and join your local Ubuntu LoCo team. Being part of a LoCo is not a requirement, but it makes it more fun.
- Read this handy little guide that I just wrote to help you get started organising a party.
- Why not join the new ubuntu-event-planners mailing list – a list for people who are organising Ubuntu
- Add your party to the Gutsy Release Parties page.
Let’s make it happen.
