Welcome to our forum! Here are some quick facts about the Louisiana LoCo Team.

What is a LoCo Team?

A LoCo Team (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoFAQ) 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.

Why are there LoCos?

LoCos (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCos) are around to help promote or support Ubuntu and build communities in specific areas. Most LoCos (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/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 (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCos) are a very important part of the Ubuntu Community.

Why should I join a LoCo team?

There are lots of benefits and fun to be had getting involved with a LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/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 (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeamJoining).

Does Canonical run the LoCo teams?

No, LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) teams are independent groups run by the group's members. These groups are organized, run, promoted and managed independently from Canonical. Although the groups are independent, there is a very close relationship with Canonical, and Canonical works to help support groups in different ways. Canonical also tries to solve serious problems in LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) teams. We see the relationship between LoCo (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCo) teams and Canonical as very close, and there is a mutual understand and respect both ways.
