Reminder: Call for new ARB members

It’s time for a recruiting round for the Application Review Board, as “we have 4 seats open yet out of the 7 seats”. If you’re interested, please send a quick email to the team mailing list (app-review-board at by latest January 14th, and we’ll walk you through the details of signing up. Mandatory requirement is you need to be an Ubuntu Developer to qualify, and will need an endorsement from at least one other Ubuntu Developer.

You’ll find more details on what it means to be an ARB member and the process of adding new members to the team at:

Full disclosure: we’re currently wading our way through a backlog of ~200 package submissions from the recent wildly successful Ubuntu App Showdown. You can see the full list at:

There’s substantial interest in automating as much of the review process as possible [1], so beyond general packaging skills and an interest in training new developers, Ideal candidates would have some interest/experience in things like creating new lintian checks, generating apparmor profiles, or otherwise improving the tools to assist package reviews. Experience in MOTU, Core Dev, Archive Admin, Backports, DMB, or Debian Developer/Maintainer would be considered a plus, but not required.

Let us know if you have any questions,
