The birth of a new planet
A while ago I announced the new cooperation with other Nordic Ubuntu teams, and I’m pleased to announce the first specific steps in that cooperation.
We have created a common planet, which aggregates feeds from the national planets, and the Swedes who made it did a fantastic job (thanks andol, larslj and the rest of you!). The planet has been translated into eight Nordic languages, so it’s ready for the smaller countries if they have blog posts to contribute with.
It is not neccesary to have a national planet to get Ubuntu blog posts in a specific Nordic country. If, for instance, an Icelandic person wants to broadcast his blog to a wider audience, but does not have a national planet to that with, he can use the Nordic Planet.
But the planet is not the only thing we have created until now.
So far the primary discussion has been taken place on the Swedish forums, though there have been some things as well on the Danish, Norwegian and Finnish forums. But we have now created a mailinglist where we can discuss future cooperative measures, without being dependent on one countrys forum or mailinglist.
We have an IRC channel where we meet and get to know each other (come see us at #email@example.com). We have a Launchpad group and a wiki page. We are all set to improve our cooperation in the future.
I’m certainly looking forward to see what eventually will emerge from this
