Applying for kubuntu-dev membership

To join the kubuntu-dev team, the Kubuntu Developers need to review your application first.

  • You MUST be a Kubuntu Member member first.
  • Set up a personal wiki page in the Ubuntu Wiki for your application. Please make use of DeveloperApplicationTemplate.
  • Talk to your sponsors beforehand and ask them to add some information to the wiki page. In a regular application, you will have 3-5 sponsors.
  • Once your application is ready, send an email indicating your readiness to apply and linking your wiki page to kubuntu-devel list. A member of kubuntu-dev will contact your and pick a meeting time you'll be able to attend (kubuntu-dev does not generally hold meetings, except to approve new members so they are not routinely scheduled). Applications may be processed via email if necessary to get sufficient review.
  • Attend the meeting.

All members of the development community are welcome to attend and ask questions, add your feedback (even if unsolicited) to the wiki page in question or ask questions on the kubuntu-devel list.

The Kubuntu Developers will have prepared for the meeting (reviewed the application details, checked a few examples of your work, talked to sponsors, etc.) and ask questions to make sure the applicant qualifies for the team. During the meeting the Kubuntu Developers will cast their votes and if quorum is reached (majority of those present and at least 3), will add the applicant to the team or ask to re-apply in due time.

  • Able to upload Kubuntu packages
  • Lots of hard work
