What is ubiquity?

The Ubuntu ubiquity wiki descibes ubiquity this way: Ubiquity is a simple graphical live CD installer designed to integrate well with Debian- and Ubuntu-based systems, written largely in Python, using d-i as a backend for many of its functions for ease of maintenance. For more info on ubiquity check out the wiki page.

What is a Hug Day?

According to the Ubuntu Wiki about HugDay's here's the answer:

The HugDay is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together with a shared goal of triaging a specific package or set of packages. Working together allows us to share knowledge and give some much needed assistance to the Ubuntu Developers. The term HugDay is a spin on BugDay but every time someone triages a bug, then someone else should hug him/her. Why? This is a very special way for us to tell everyone that we love contributions! And triaging bugs is a really big contribution.


Mark your calenders and join in on all the fun tomorrow, Thursday, March 11, 2010.
