Re: Ubuntu users cooperation in the Nordic and Baltic countries?
(Can't post comments on your blog, sorry!)
I remember this conversation although I did not partake. I think the
idea sounds great although I can't see on the Ubuntu Sweden forums that
it has been discussed since earlier messages.
I think there could be some great benefits for the Ubuntu / Linux
community in general if there was a national association. As I
understand, Svenska Linuxföreningen has become dormant since some years
back? I work with civictech.se and we see it as part of our work to
support development Ubuntu/Debian and Linux communities in Sweden.
