Today’s article is just going to be a short article about my Lubuntu (and by extension Ubuntu) membership status. It’s only a news/meta article and you can safely skip it. Or you can read on… I don’t mind… It’s just some news.
For starters, you can see when I first joined the Lubuntu team originally:
Meta: I’m Now An Official Lubuntu (And Ubuntu) Member!
What I do, more often than not, is do the live testing for the daily .iso. It’s tedious work, but I enjoy the challenge and have the time. You might want to read:
What it’s Like To Beta-test Linux, Specifically Lubuntu
Now, I do my testing with Lubuntu. I’m also an Ubuntu Member. This is because I have to be an Ubuntu Member to be a Lubuntu Member. If you’re an official member of some of the more recent flavors, that’s no longer true. You can be an official member without official Ubuntu membership.
Membership lasts a a year. My year was up and I submitted a renewal application. I was once again accepted as an official member.
So, I’m an official Lubuntu (and Ubuntu) Member for another year. Yay!
I’d like to take a moment to invite others to join in helping out their favorite distro. You don’t have to dedicate all your time to it. You don’t have to be a programmer. If you want, you can get involved – and make an appreciable difference.
So, thus ends this article. I need an easy day once in a while, and now you know my membership status has been renewed. Enjoy the easy day!
