Subject: UDS Sponsorship Now Open

Hi All,

The Ubuntu Developer Summit ( (UDS) is the most
important event in the Ubuntu calendar. It is where we get together to
discuss, design, and plan the next version of Ubuntu; in this case the
Ubuntu 12.10 release.

The next UDS takes place at **The Oakland Marriott City Center,
Oakland, California, USA** from the **7th - 11th May 2012**. You can
find out more about why UDS is interesting from the perspective of a
member of the community (,
an upstream contributor (,
and a vendor ( We also
welcome everyone to participate remotely
( if you can't attend the
event in person. More more details on how to get there, see

At the heart of a great UDS is a diverse group of attendees who can
bring their experience and expertise to the discussions. You don't
have to be technical, or be a programmer or packager to attend - UDS
is open to everyone (including non-Ubuntu folks) and free to attend.
We encourage everyone with an interest in Ubuntu to attend.

For every UDS Canonical sponsors the hotel and accommodation of a set
of community members to ensure they are free to contribute and bring
value to the discussions. We have a limited budget so we can't sponsor
everyone, but we are always keen to have a capable and diverse group
to sponsor:

* We strive to support community members who are actively involved in
Ubuntu and who are providing *significant and sustained* contributions
to the Ubuntu project.
* We always welcome Upstream contributors who are bring value to
Ubuntu indirectly via active participation in their upstream project,
but who are keen to see quality support for that upstream in Ubuntu.
* Contributors are willing to actively participate not only
throughout the full Ubuntu Developer Summit week, but also following
with active contributions throughout the release cycle.
* We are always keen to welcome members of the community who have
never been to UDS before and are keen to participate and experience
the event.
* You don’t have to provide technical contributions to apply – if you
have participated in the areas of advocacy, documentation, testing,
art, design etc, you are encouraged to apply.
* UDS is an event that encourages diversity – we welcome everyone to
apply for sponsorship, irrespective of gender, race, impairment,
technical expertise, or other factors.

If you are participating in the Ubuntu community, we would love you to
apply for sponsorship. This is how it works:

1. You can apply for sponsorship by following The deadline for
submissions is **Wed 22nd February 2012** so be sure to get yours in!
2. When the deadline is reached we will assess the applications and
finalize who we will be able to sponsor.
3. You will then receive an email outlining whether we can sponsor you
or not.

Simple! I look forward to seeing your applications, and seeing many of
you in Oakland!
