There are as many reasons to work with bugs as there are people doing it. I think mostly it falls into two categories: 1. The people that just want to make Ubuntu as clean and user-friendly as it can be, and 2. The people that want to improve launchpad karma. The Number One reason we should be working on Ubuntu bugs is Bug No. 1. I guess, for me, it's a little of each. I started by just reporting bugs and realized I could get something in return other than satisfaction.
Anything related to our team.

Great team meeting last night!! Craig will have the team newsletter out on Wednesday so you can get all the particulars. After some announcements, we got into the heart of the meeting. The talk mostly centered around the servers. Now that this site is up and running, we want to move forward to the next round of development for our website.
Test Server Address: test.azloco.com
The main purpose of the test server is to test applications and services before installing them on our main server. The test server is also available for existing members to try their hand at administration on a server that is publicly accessible. This does not mean the test server is a free for all. Intentions and ideas still need to be communicated within our group. If you have been participating with our group for a long time and already have a regular shell account you may request access to the test server. Contact Shane Lofgren (slofgren), Todd Cole (toddc) or Scott Gwin (scott_ev) in IRC. If you can't reach any of us in IRC bring you9r proposal to the Sunday night team meeting.
To get some test server time in you must do the following.
1. Discuss your plans in IRC. This is a group and we need to interact as one. If there are not any concerns then...
The Phoenix Linux Users Group (PLUG) had their Westside meeting today. I attended it like I have been for the last couple of meetings. Several members had recently gone to SCALE in California, so most of the meeting was devoted to talking about what they did there. They said that it was a great learning experience, and a great way to meet many people that use free software. Hans even gave a presentation at SCALE which he went through with us. They are planning on going back next year and invite anyone that is interested to go along with them.
