    Application for Membership - Doug S

    Hi all,

    Having registered at Ubuntu Forums 2 years 0 months 0 days 0 hours and 0 minutes ago, approximately...

    Now, I would like to apply for Ubuntu Membership.

    My wiki page is here:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/dsmythies

    and my Launchpad page is here:
    https://launchpad.net/~dsmythies

    Thank you

    Doug S

    Readers might be concerned that this ended up as an upstream issue at kernel.org and therfore doesn't count as "Ubuntu" contribution. O.K., fair enough, however the issue started at the forums and I was just following and sticking with it until it was solved.
    I wouldn't think that anyone who knows how opensource works would consider that as not contributing to Ubuntu.

    Good luck with the application. +1

    O.K. thanks nothingspecial,

    I agree, but just for completeness:

    My worry that lead to that sentence from my wiki page, was from here , specifically this:
    Ubuntu also benefits from contributions to upstream projects and Debian specifically. However, while contributions to those projects are appreciated and worth being recognized, involvement in downstream Ubuntu is required for membership. After all it's all about Ubuntu membership.
    Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.

    For people looking for membership from other contributions that is a fair point, however membership via forum is for forum contribution - as we'd not go looking on other forums but this Ubuntu one - then you're worry is unfounded

    Your application here will be on the contribution you have made to Ubuntu via the forum as are all here.
