Learn to package apps for Ubuntu
Ubuntu Linux fans wanting to get more involved in the creation of Ubuntu can now learn to package applications during the newly-launched Package Training days. The new initiative by the Ubuntu team will see Thursdays being set aside for online lessons on preparing and maintaining application packages.
The one-hour sessions will be held in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net and will each feature a main speaker and an opportunity for participants to ask questions.
