Communitizing the Ubuntu.com site, and showing respect for the Community

Registered by Mark Terranova on 2013-05-04

Phone, tablet, TV, cloud, and. management have taken priority over the Community. This is counter to original idea of Ubuntu. I am what I am because of what we all are

"We chose the name Ubuntu for our distribution because we think it captures perfectly the spirit of the sharing and cooperation that is at the heart of the open source movement."

It's a movement. The word cooperation implies Canonical and Community. Cooperation is hard if you are relegated to a greyish footer.

I also attached the important bug#1. "A Community is needed as a significant part of a solution to fix this bug.

Whiteboard

Just as a heads-up. I declined the blueprint for uds-1305 because https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/community-1305-ubuntu-website-planning was already registered and accepted with the same topic. Please subscribe to that one instead. --dholbach

I am droping this bug *fully* due to to http://design.canonical.com/2013/05/ubuntu-com-update/ and of course the 1305 session :) --markdude
