=== A new era for the Ubuntu community team, or business as usual ===
David Planella informs the community that now Jono Bacon has stepped
down as Community Manager, a new era in Ubuntu begins, and that for
his former team it will be business as usual. He says that although
there will be changes, the weekly Q&A Ubuntu on Air session will
continue. David ends by reminding us of the the Ubuntu Online Summit
that will take place between June 10th-12th.
Jose Antonio Rey informs us that due to an increase in IRC meetings an
alternate channel called #ubuntu-meeting-2 has been opened, and that

=== The Fridge: Renewed call for 12:00 UTC Membership Board Nominees ===
Elizabeth K. Joseph reminds us that at the end of April there was a
call for nominations to the Membership Board. She says that, although
some nominations have been received, they have all been for the 22:00
UTC board. Elizabeth recaps on the requirements for the position and
says that without sufficient people to run the 12:00 UTC session it is
possible that there may have to be a modified membership application
process for the APAC region.
=== Jamie Strandboge: Application isolation with AppArmor - part IV ===
Jamie Strandboge writes about the improvements to AppArmor in Ubuntu
14.04 LTS including mediation of signals and ptrace, policy updates,
and the python rewrite of userspace tools. Jamie lists some things
that he like to see done for Ubuntu 14.10, saying that some of the bug
fixes will be backported to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
=== Making ubuntu.com responsive: dealing with responsive images (10) ===
Inayaili de Leon Persson completes the series on making ubuntu.com
resposive by writing about how to handle responsive images. She takes
the various image formats and tells us how each of them was handled.
Inayaili says that, despite visible improvements, there are plenty of
things left to explore including the use of an asset server which is
currently being worked on.
David Planella is joined by Alan Pope, Michael Hall, Nicholas Skaggs
and Daniel Holbach for the first in a new series of weekly Q&A
sessions which will be held by Ubuntu's Community Team at 1800 UTC

Ultimate Fighting Champion ===
We're back with Season Seven, Episode Nine of the Ubuntu Podcast! Alan

chocolatey) in Studio L.
