Než začnete, budete se možná chtít zaregistrovat na Launchpad.net a vytvořit o sobě stránku na wiki.ubuntu.cz a napsat o svých zálibách a vlohách, které by mohli být užitečné členství v X/K/Ed/Ubuntu komunitě.

Seznam projektů a týmů Xubuntu

Nahlašování bugů

Software contains flaws, called bugs. To manage them, Xubuntu uses the Malone bug tracking system. Malone is a new bug tracker created as part of the Launchpad architecture. Malone is used to track all bugs for Xubuntu and bugs for packages from other distributions.

Getting Started

Malone uses the Launchpad accounts, just as the Ubuntu wiki. To file a bug report, you'll need to have a launchpad account which you can easily create.

Filing Bugs

Before submitting a bug, you'll want to search through the existing bug reports and release notes to ensure. If the bug has not already been reported, then you may create a new bug report.

Please do not file a bug report for the following:

  • Feature requests
  • Support requests
  • Policy discussion
  • Development ideas

When filing out the bug report, It is better to have more information than too little - Try to be as descriptive as possible. For more information on bug reports and how to file them, please visit the Ubuntu bugsquad wiki pages.

Conclusion

After you've filed a bug report, you'll most likely find that a developer or a member of the bugsquad will request more detailed information to help the development team in debugging and correcting the issue.

Advocacy

The easiest way to give back to the Ubuntu community is by telling others about Xubuntu and become an Xubuntu advocate:

  • Join or start a Local Community Team and get involved in Ubuntu advocacy, activities, talks, help install Ubuntu on new users' computers by organizing or attending install parties and provide friendly support in your local community and language.
  • Give a talk at your local Linux User Group or other technical group on Ubuntu! A sample of templates, talks and notes given by others in several languages are available on the wiki.
  • Order CDs from Shipit and distribute them to people as part of larger groups or on your own. Drop them off at LUGs, Internet Cafes or anywhere that people use computers. Share the love! But don't fire and forget, help people to make the most of the Free Software world and to become part of the revolution.
  • Join the Ubuntu marketing team and assist in their promotion and advocacy efforts to help promote Xubuntu.
  • In general, you should show your friends the power of Free Software, spread the word and raise general awareness around Ubuntu!

Support

You can make a major contribution to the Xubuntu project by helping others use Xubuntu:

  • Join an email support list or discussion list on the Ubuntu Mailing Lists. The primary support list is ubuntu-users and the primary announcement lists are ubuntu-announce and ubuntu-news.
  • Respond to support requests on launchpad.
  • Join the Xubuntu support and discussion IRC channel: #xubuntu on irc.freenode.net

Ideas and feedback

Help steer the direction we take Ubuntu, by describing your vision and ideas for a better server and desktop OS and application stack.

  • Participate in discussions and brainstorming on the Xubuntu Wiki where we work on the fastest-moving documents before they are ready for publication on the main web site.
  • Add your ideas to the Idea Pool for features you'd like to see in Xubuntu, products, marketing suggestions or any other ideas you'd like to add here.
  • Attend the Xubuntu meetings.

Remember, in the open source world, code counts more than talk so try to find friends or link up with people who can help turn your vision into reality, or start cutting the code yourself if that's your line of interest.

Documentation

If you get stumped by a problem, chances are good that many other people will be frustrated by it as well. If you are not in a position to write code to change the situation -- for whatever reason -- you can help everyone else out by writing up your experience and documenting the solution! Some of the most constructive ways to get involved in the Xubuntu documentation community might be:

  • Take notes as you puzzle through a problem and then document the solution. Check to see if documentation already exists first. If it does, augment or improve existing documentation. If it doesn't go ahead and add a page in the wiki. Rather than answer a question two or more times, write up the answer and make it available to everyone in the wiki.
  • Read through the HOWTOs and other documentation in the Ubuntu forums, read them over and check them for accuracy, and put them in the wiki. Read the Wiki Guide for help with this.
  • If you are interested in working on the official Xubuntu documentation, you can join the Ubuntu Documentation Team. Information on getting started with the Documentation Team is online at the Documentation team website.
  • Help clean, proof read, and test the instructions in the community wiki. You can help get an idea of useful tasks in the WikiToDo for more information.

Artwork

If you are more artistic than literary, you can express that talent and improve the style and feel of the Ubuntu desktop by contributing artwork and helping design the next release of Xubuntu.

If you have skills with wallpapers, Inkscape, icons and themes you should contribute to the Art team. You can communicate with the team by joining ubuntu-art mailing list.

Translation and Localization

If your home language is not English but you happen to have really good English skills and are comfortable using software in English, you can make a huge contribution by helping to translate the Ubuntu applications into your home language. Even if you just translate a few lines you may make all the difference to someone in your own country who is just starting to learn about computers and Free Software.

  • Translate applications that are included in Ubuntu into your language using the web-based Rosetta translation system.
  • Translate documents written by the documentation team. This can also be done using Rosetta.
  • Translate popular wiki pages within the wiki.
  • In order to handle translation, fonts, and other issues, you should connect with your Local Community Team. LoCo teams often handle this sort of issue.

Quality Assurance and Bugs

Xubuntu, like any piece of software, needs good testers. You can contribute to Xubuntu simply by running the latest version and reporting bugs and helping follow those bugs until they are fixed.

The first steps in getting involved in Xubuntu QA and bug-tracking include:

  • Running the latest development version of Xubuntu, and upgrading regularly.

  • Subscribing to the xubuntu-devel mailing list online and watching it. Many developers post testing and experimental packages to mailing list. Testing CDs are often very under-tested. You can make an important contribution by following the mailing list and reporting bugs and issues that you run into.

Of course, you will run into problems when you run these testing and development version of Xubuntu. Using the software alone is not a contribution; only when you report the bugs that you encounter do you make a meaningful contribution to the Xubuntu community.

  • When you find bugs, you should report bugs into the Xubuntu Malone. You can make sure your bugs are more useful by carefully reading GNOME projects bug HOWTO.

  • Look through bugs, especially new bugs, to "triage" them and to find, confirm, and close duplicates. This can also involve verifying and reproducing bugs adding information to the bug description.

  • Finally, you can make a huge impact by following up on bugs in packages that you care about and by fixing them!

See the documentation on our wiki about bug reporting.

Programming and Packaging

The final way to make an impact in Xubuntu is by getting your hands on the code. You can make technical contributions to Xubuntu by writing new software, by packaging additional software, and by fixing bugs in software. If you're interested in hacking on Xubuntu:

  • The first step is to join and begin reading the xubuntu-devel mailing list. This is a requirement for anyone who contributes to xubuntu as a maintainer.

  • If you are relatively inexperienced with maintaining distribution packages, then you should seek out the Masters of the Universe. The MOTU maintain the packages in universe, which has less strict requirements than the core Ubuntu components. They also mentor new maintainers on the policies and processes of Xubuntu. You can look over the MOTU ToDo list to see which projects need help.

  • Once you have gained experience with packaging tasks (for example, by playing an active role in the MOTU team), you will be able to move from a universe-only maintainer to an Xubuntu main distribution maintainer, following this process.

  • Look through the list of Xubuntu specifications. You can pick one of these and there should be enough information to begin with an implementation.

  • There are some software projects for Xubuntu that are available as paid bounties. You can look through the list of bounties and then submit a proposal and references.

  • Write and package brand new software for Xubuntu. We can get new software into the Xubuntu Universe so that people can try it out and give you feedback, and in time it may become part of the Xubuntu Main portfolio of applications that are available to all Xubuntu users by default.

Testing New Versions

Every six months, a new version of Xubuntu is released. To ensure the quality of this new version, it needs to be tested and the results need to be reported. For more instructions on how to get started testing the newest, unreleased version on Xubuntu, see the Xubuntu/Testing on the Ubuntu wiki. Do note that it is generally not recommended to install an unreleased version of Xubuntu on machines that need to be stable!
