The Ubuntu Rhode Island Team's Launchpad site is created. If you are interested in joining, create an account in Launchpad if you don't already have one and request membership to the team:

https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-rhodeisland

We still need help with creating the Wiki page for the team. This forum and the Launchpad sites are open and ready. I have already submitted a request for a mailing list.
