Coordinating with "Country Teams"

Registered by Mark Shuttleworth on 2006-10-17

The LoCo system has given us a good way to encourage local groups to form that perform advocacy, training, education, awareness and translation services to the Ubuntu community. We need to formalise our relationship with "countries", though, so that we have a dedicated point of contact for the country, especially in the case where there are many LoCo teams in a given country. In particular we need a way to coordinate issues of language and translation, so this spec may turn into something as part of the translation leadership discussion.

Just as a comment I would say that some grouping by language is also going to be more and more useful as language specific unofficial manuals also need contact and some support. DuncanLithgow Jan 10, 2008

Speaking as an anarchist, It would be nice if "None" or "Other" were options for a country name. Many political boundaries are imaginary. Some find it objectionable to enter a country name in an installer. I recognize the important benefits of the keyboard language, time zone & weather benefits to this information. Perhaps being careful to say "near" rather than "in" would be good clarification language to use. http://launchpad.net/~joebaker
