I love Ubuntu and I'd like to be able to contribute to it despite the fact that I'm not a developer and not what you'd call an 'expert' Linux user.
I just enjoy the freedom, security and flexibility which Ubuntu brings.
Trouble is, I'm wondering just what non-development types like me can contribute to Ubuntu that isn't just word-of-mouth promotion.
There must be lots of skills out there among the Ubuntu user base that can be harnessed to help improve the OS and its marketing.
I for example, am a qualified journalist, and I now work for a local authority in England preparing and editing content for the internet and advising on best practice for publishing content on the web.
I spend a lot of time on site architectures and making the user experience on various websites as intuitive as possible, while containing easy to understand, quality information.
Would there be any scope in the project to help contribute my skills in any way?
It'd be no problem for me to chip in with copy writing, blurb, descriptions on the software centre, etc.
Where would I start?
Are there not a raft of graphic designers, UI developers, PR people etc out there who would be willing to chip in as well?!
Any suggestions on how myself or anyone else could get involved?
