Every two years, Ubuntu LoCo's need to be re-approved by the LoCo Council, and this year was Ubuntu-ZA's turn again. LoCo's have to show that they are active, have a history of activity, and a roadmap of future activities, amongst other things, in order to be re-approved.
Apparently, this year has been tougher than before, as well. Some previously official LoCo's were not re-approved, despite being fairly active. With this in mind, a number of folks made sure we documented as much of what we've been up to, and what we're hoping to do in the next couple of months. A special thank you to maiatoday who led the effort to write up our re-approval application on the Ubuntu wiki.
I'm proud to announce that we were indeed re-approved! Yay! Ubuntu-ZA is an official Ubuntu LoCo for the next two years! Not only were we re-approved though, it was a unanimous decision from the LoCo Council, as can be seen by the final voting results:
[08/03 21:23:51] <MootBot> Final result is 7 for, 0 against. 0 abstained. Total: 7
