Celebrating developer contributions

Registered by Daniel Holbach on 2011-10-25

How can we get better at celebrating contributions to Ubuntu development? There is massive amounts of great work going into Ubuntu, some of this is under the radar because it is less visible. Celebrating this more publicly would be both inspiring for those who did the good work, and others who didn't know about the great work before.
