    Re: Contributing to Karmic Koala

    As you can see from my join date I am real new.

    I have Kinky Kitten (9.10) on a partition and am real impressed.

    I have one problem that I wasn't sure what to do with and filed a report and followed (or at least tried to) this post.

    It may not be a real good bug report but is a lot better than it would have been without this post. Thank you very much.

    Re: Contributing to Karmic Koala

    Hi!

    I am a newbie in the whole development topic. Please do not stone me.

    I would like to contribute to the development of ubuntu in this release cycle of Karmic Koala. I read a bit in the wiki, but I am still not quiet sure how I can do something. My idea was to install Karmic on my external hard drive and look for bugs to report.

    The problem is that I do not get if there is a special way of searching for bugs which are important for this release. During the development of Jaunty I read that there is an automated way of looking for bugs. Is there something like that for Karmic? Or to cut a long story short: Where and how shall I begin when I am looking for bugs?

    Thanks a lot,

    Daniel

    Just use 9.10 and use it hard. Try to overload it. Have lots of apps open at once.

    HAVE FUN.

    Little bit offtopic:

    when replying to bug on LP via gmail, is it normal to have long latency before the message appears on LP? or does it ever?

    Wrote response to bug, via gmail 15 minutes ago, still haven't appeared on launchpad.

    I don't think so. I reply to bugs on GMail quite often and though I don't look at the watch I guess in 5-10 minutes the comment should be there.

    Somehow my reply address was corrupted and doesn't behave nicely.

    Re: Contributing to Karmic Koala

    Is there anything I can do to contribute to the official artwork? I was eagerly awaiting changes to Karmic Desktop Artwork, but weeks after UDS it has remained unchanged.

    The default artwork is mostly done by Canonical itself, but there are some ways to pitch in. You should checkout https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/

    One place community contributions might be used in the default artwork is the background: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Inco...ic/Backgrounds

    You might also want to check out this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...03#post7520803

    There are other initiatives for non-default stuff like the community-themes package: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Docu...ommunityThemes

    I know about the community ones, that's why I accented official.
    It's just so frustrating seeing the community blueprints so active and the official ones seemingly dormant.

    I'll think about stuff for branding and definitely look into the boot experience.
