Operation Cleansweep: We Need YOU!

One of the most critical components in any flourishing community is to ensure contributions that are offered in good faith are fairly reviewed in a timely manner. Unfortunately, the success of Ubuntu has resulted in more contributions than we have had time to review, and Nigel Babu is leading the way to encourage the community to review these outstanding patches.

This is important and worthwhile work, and I am really keen to encourage you all to get involved.

How do you get involved? Simple:

  1. Read the Operation cleansweep wiki page to get an idea of what we are trying to do.
  2. Read our Reviewers Guide that explains the process of how you review a patch.
  3. Pick a patch from this list to review.
  4. Review it and provide feedback.
  5. Join #ubuntu-reviewers to ask for help.

To do this you don’t have to be programmer, you don’t have to have a degree in rocket science, and you don’t have to like metal. The only requirement is that you have the desire to make Ubuntu better, and if you are reading this, you clearly have that.

Thanks in advance to everyone who helps! :-)

    I find it very nice attitude to further improve the Ubuntu OS, I think that in order to popularize expalhar and Ubuntu should be better known through the pages of sites such as Facebook, Orkut and many others also think that it would iteressante industries games PC, compatible develop games for Ubuntu, because I watch the games that functional in most non-Windows OS in Ubuntu, and other things that I do not remember, I am a new User on Ubuntu and have basic notions find interesting in a kind of simulator OS Ubuntu to let new user from within the operation of Ubuntu and its tools.

    Acho muito legal a atitude de melhorar ainda mais o S.O Ubuntu, penso que para poder expalhar e popularizar o Ubuntu se deveria haver maior divulgação pelas paginas de relacionamento como Facebook, Orkut e varias outras, penso tambem que seria iteressante que as industrias de jogos para PC, desenvolvam jogos compativeis para o Ubuntu, pois observo que a jogos que funcional nos S.O do Windows mais não no Ubuntu, e outras coisas que não me recordo, sou um Usuario novo no Ubuntu e tenho noções basicas acho interessante uma especie de simulador dentro do S.O Ubuntu para deixar novos usuario por dentro do funcionamento do Ubuntu e suas ferramentas.
