With an installfest approaching (back on 04 August) and being devoid of Canonical flash drives to distribute to the new people who always show up and want to have Ubuntu installed on their computer, a conference pack was ordered from Canonical which would include the flash drives as well as other swag to be distributed to new converts.
Anything Ubuntu related
Canonical will be releasing Ubuntu 18.04, Bionic Beaver, on 26 April 2018. To celebrate this event Ubuntu-Arizona Local Community Team will conduct a Release Party at the home of Walter and Ingeborg Mack, 5831 W. Kesler St. Chandler, AZ on 21 April from 2-6pm. The AZLOCO/PLUG Installfest for the same day at the University of Advancing Technology will be relocated to that location also starting at 2 pm. instead of the normal 10 am. Internet will be available, installs will still be conducted and problems will be solved while we celebrate the release of Bionic Beaver and enjoy some excellent food, great camaraderie, and some serious (and some not so serious) discussions. More details to follow. Pencil in the event on your calendar now. Everyone interested in Free and Open Source Software is invited. This will be a potluck party so please bring a dish to share. For any questions, please contact email@example.com
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with the dish that you will be bringing and the number of people that will be attending. Thank you

It is time for the AZLOCO Team to be re-verified by the LoCo Council. We are on the agenda for their 12 September 2017 meeting at 2000 UTC (1300 our time). The meeting will take place on #Ubuntu-meeting on irc.freenode.net. Attend the meeting if you can to support your local Team.
This is a recent email to the ubuntu-devel mailing list that describes not only recent changes to the do-release-upgrade process, but how it works in general. It is also posted here.
If you are unaccustomed to the command-line...first of all, you should learn the command line. But for now, the do-release-upgrade utility is used to upgrade from one Ubuntu release to another. The graphical desktop utility utilizes this as well.
