Ladies and gents, this week is a big week for Ubuntu. As we build toward the release of Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope on Thursday April 23rd 2009, final preparations are being put in place.
While there is much going on right now I just wanted to focus your attention in this particular post on Release Parties. At the time of writing we have 92 release parties happening all over the world! Thanks to everyone who is participating in organising and joining these parties: we have already broken our record for the number of parties organised for a release. At the start of this cycle my goal was for us to break the **100* party milestone and we are so close to this record we can taste it! So, if there is no party in your area on this page, go and organise one and add it. We can do this, friends. 🙂
Also, I would love to see just how many group photos we can get for these parties. To do this just get as many people as you can to stand against a wall, get someone to take a photo and put it online on Flickr / Picasa etc and tag it with
jaunty. I am also planning to build a montage of these group photos, so would appreciate if you folks could email at
jono AT ubuntu DOT com with a link to your group photo and the name of the LoCo team and location of the party. Thanks, folks!
