What is a LoCo team?
Why are there LoCos?
Team is a Local Community of (in our case) Ubuntu users. A LoCo
can involve a lot of things such as local promoting, support in the local language, general support to local users and much more. Most importantly however, it lets people find other Ubuntu users near them.
LoCosWhy should I join a LoCo team?
are around to help promote or support Ubuntu and build communities in specific areas. Most LoCos
have projects such as translating or customising Ubuntu for their specific area, which is one of the things that makes Ubuntu great. The LoCos
are a very important part of the Ubuntu Community.
Do Canonical run the LoCo teams?
There are lots of benefits and fun to be had getting involved with a LoCo
team, not only in terms of spreading awareness about Ubuntu, but also helping to develop free software in your community, improve Ubuntu and more. For more details see this page
teams are independent groups run by the group's members. These groups are organised, run, promoted and managed independently from Canonical. Although the groups are independent, there is a very close relationship with Canonical, and Canonical work to help support groups in different ways. Canonical also try to solve serious problems in LoCo
teams. We see the relationship between LoCo
teams and Canonical as very close, and there is a mutual understand and respect both ways.
