Hirsute Release Schedule

Volunteer Contributor Highlights

Note from Monica Ayhens-Madon

Hello, all! The 21.04 release is almost here, and as part of the social media campaign, we’d like to highlight the volunteer contributors who help make Ubuntu (including its flavors and remixes) possible! As part of building up our team/group focuses, we’re asking volunteer contributors to share what you’ve done to be a part of 21.04. These responses will be used to create blog posts and social media posts on Twitter. Thank you for helping us highlight the fantastic work you all have done, and for helping Hirsute Hippo happen!
-Monica Ayhens-Madon, Ubuntu Community Representative
