Guest post from Barry Burke:
Naming The Ubuntu 13.10 Release.
Ubuntu is code-named around 6 months in advance of every released at around the time of the previous release. Ubuntu is known for its outrages names of a Adjective followed by an animal.
Suggestions are allowed by anybody with a standard Ubuntu account.. Just submit idea
I have often seen a name and it would have suggested by a group beside it (here you can also explain what the animal and the adjective are) I propose we put our minds together.Send in a few suggestions to the mailing list and decide on 1 or more for the 13.10 release. The Letter is S this time around. It would be great if we got a Irish connection to the name of ubuntu 13.10 release and would be a great boost to the loco team.
As Already talked about on the Irc Meting and the Ubuntu Ireland Mailing list
The Suggestions we have Are:
– pronounced shun-ach. Sionnach is an irish for a red fox or Madra Rua.
That was suggested by Tommy on the Mailing list.
He Also suggested Sublime sionnach
sublime: Of such excellence, grandeur, or beauty as to inspire great admiration or awe.
Victor9098 suggested on irc Sinuous Sionnach
If you have any more of them why not post to the mailing list or here and we can discuss it on irc
Our LoCo Team Reboot IRC meeting will take place this Wednesday (06 Feb 13) at 20:30 local time. I sincerely hope we will have a good active discussion about how we can keep our LoCo active into the future. All ideas and suggestions are welcome. If you are interested in Ubuntu and the Ubuntu Ireland LoCo Team I encourage you to participate in this meeting.
You can contribute as much or as little as you like but please do get involved. I’d also ask you all to spread the news of this reboot meeting as widely as possible in all social media streams. If you know someone who might be interested but who is not subscribed to this mailing list please tell them about the meeting.
Details of the meeting can be found at:
Anyone can add an agenda item. If you’d like to add an agenda item just log on to the LoCo Team Portal yourself or reply to this mail and I will add it for you.
