Whiteboard

Overarching blueprint for the Ubuntu Advocacy Kit is located here: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/community-r-ubuntu-advocacy-kit

The Ubuntu Advocacy Kit is located here:
https://launchpad.net/uak

This blueprint will cover work to be done during the 13.03 to 13.05 (next UDS) timeframe. Please keep duration in mind when suggesting work items.

Topics we might want to discuss:
- History (how we got where we are), including the re-name
- Problem Statement (what are we trying to accomplish with the UAK?)
- Use cases (Who is the UAK designed for? What are our audiences)
- Current installability (in Raring)
- Backlog of merge requests
- Area(s) of greatest need
- Would we want to ever release a physical version?

Related:
- Ubuntu Evangelists Team - starting up (a result of UDS session in Copenhagen)
- How does it relate to UAK?
- Team is located here: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-evangelists (Join us!)
- Evangelists - How do we find more of them?
- Blueprint for Ubuntu Evangelists is here:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/community-13.03-ubuntu-evangelists

"Out there" ideas:
- Would we envision the UAK going physical at some point and becoming a source of Ubuntu (software)? (e.g. include latest LTS ISO's, or a download section?)

(?)
