A month or so ago, I created a team for the scientists that use Ubuntu and its favours called the Ubuntu Scientists team. The goal of the team is the closest to the Ubuntu Women team; which is to help women to get careers and acceptation in the FOSS/Ubuntu Linux Community. But for the Ubuntu Scientists team, it’s to help scientists of all sorts (political, biological, chemists, ect.) to get careers and acceptation in the FOSS/Ubuntu Linux Community.
Since this team is new, there is a lot of work that is needed to be done and I’m seeking help. Most of the help is required to get the team wiki pages set up. I feel like there is more of information then what I have. As I stated in this mailing-list thread, I’m looking for a person or two (or even more!) to help me to write some of the wiki pages for our team. Please reply to this e-mail if you have any questions or you want to help out. If you want to join in to help me and the scientists in the Community, we have a LaunchPad team HERE.
There is also an IRC channel and it’s #ubuntu-scientists on irc.freenode.net.
Hopefully, this team will grow and help scientists within the Community.
EDIT 1: balachmar, in the IRC channel of the team, asked me about the goals since I wasn’t clear:
[10:13] <balachmar> Do you want to help scientists find FLOSS alternatives, or do you want scientist to be more involved in Ubuntu, or actually try to convince scientist to make a career in FLOSS development?
[10:13] <belkinsa> All three of them. Really.
