We'd like to figure out how we can make the development of Ubuntu more transparent and how to make it easier to participate.

Whiteboard

Transparency
- How are we doing in terms of transparency in the decisions?
- Do weekly updates and Q&A help? E.g. Engineering Live, Community Team Q&A?
-

Post more updates from each sub-community to the global community accounts

Get feedback from all teams in the Ubuntu Community, find ways to show the plans and the work that's been done, and how people can participate
Where do we send updates to? UWN, Social media...

Suggestions:
- List events on community.ubuntu.com
- Ensure Ubuntu On Air is more widely known and linked to
- Use the community team mailing list more

New community website wiki is at http://aveemashfaq.blogspot.in/2014/11/my-design-ubuntu-community-website.html
