I love the idea of this Ubuntu team.
Papercuts are fast to fix, but annoying bugs. Our mission is to make Ubuntu shined by reducing them.
Polish is one of those things that is so difficult to get right, especially in such a complex project. Having a dedicated team that highlights all of the annoying bugs that drive users away not only encourages a focus on polish, but also makes it easier for “drive by contributors” to make a real impact.
I am committing some time to taking a crack at some of these.
If you made it this far, you should probably follow me on twitter. 🙂 Follow @levlaz
