=== Mercurial Imports will end on October 5th ===

Matthew Revell of Launchpad shares that "on the 5th of October they'll
be ending their beta of Mercurial imports in Launchpad. On that day
existing Mercurial imports will cease and there won't be any
possibility to create new ones." However, Revell points out that "this
doesn't affect Bazaar, Git, Subversion or CVS imports." The reason for
Mercurial ending is because of low usage and low quality.

== Ubuntu Cloud News ==

=== How we ran the scheduler for the Linux Plumbers conference ===

Jorge Castro discusses how Ubuntu's cloud team, together with Summit
OSS maintainer Chris Johnston, hosted, deployed, and managed the Linux
plumbers conference schedule via juju.
Since Castro and his team are "generalizing this work into a more
generic Django charm," anyone interested can contact Castro. Help is
not required just with Django but with "Pyramid, nodejs, Rails and
$your_favorite_web_platform" as well.

=== [Juju Adventure] Live testing ===

Victor Tuson Palau continues his blog series demonstrating how Ubuntu
is the best environment to write up "connected" or "cloud backend"
Android Apps using Juju with a blog post titled "How to test if it all
works in a production environment?"

=== Xubuntu: Offline documentation rewritten for 12.10 ===

The Xubuntu team announces that offline documentation has been
refreshed for the 12.10 cycle. Included among the changes are
restructured content, updated documentation to reflect new default
applications, and completely rewritten sections.

=== Jono Bacon: More Information About Online Dash Search Privacy ===

Jono Bacon responds to some of the concerns about user privacy that
have arisen since the inclusion of the ability for the Dash to search
external sources for results. After speaking with John Lenton, Senior
Engineering Manager, Jono reassures users that no user-identifiable
data is retrieved during the search, and that Canonical does not
perform any kind of user tracking. They also touched upon concerns
about the searches being unencrypted, saying "we are currently working
to encrypt these dash searches ready for the release of this feature
in Ubuntu 12.10."

In a later post, Bacon re-enforces that the shopping lens is still
under development and testing, and that there will be an option to
easily disable it.

=== Charlene Tessier: In Response - Ubuntu: Re-Doing the Possible ===

Charlene Tessier writes about problems around Ubuntu usage and
adoption, and criticism by existing users about recent changes to the
operating system, speculating that 99% of people don't know what
Ubuntu is or what it is for. We want to reach all of these other
people, so Tessier thinks that a solution for the adoption problem is
to go out on the street and talk with people who haven't used Ubuntu
yet to see what they like and prefer.

developers to work with the LXC library. The goal is to make it
accessible from other languages with some bindings. Graber also
discusses how the initial implementation of the API has been pushed to

12.10.

Veronica Henry of ReadWriteWeb shares an interview with Ubuntu Women,
Elizabeth Krumbach, and Cheri Francis. Henry points out that Ubuntu

developer community can come and ask questions without fear of
intimidation or condescension." Henry also highlights crucial parts of
the Ubuntu Women organization such as mentoring, contributions, and
education.

Henry points out that, as in any part of the Ubuntu project, people
are welcome to join Ubuntu Women as well. They can do that by
"contacting anyone on the leadership team
(wiki.ubuntu-women.org/Contacts ) or check out the #ubuntu-women and
#ubuntu-women-project IRC channels."

John Gold of Network World brings us thoughts from different people in

something we don't understand, this isn't a community we're going to
seek to control of - we've already been in the OpenStack world, we've

=== Ubuntu Ohio - Burning Circle: Burning Circle Episode 84 ===

Stephen Michael Kellat brings us news, among other things, about the
Amazon shopping experience under Ubuntu, and mass market needs. The
question is raised whether to be proactive in announcing a feature or
being reactive when somebody else says something about it. Most simply
put: Is anybody responsible for communicating to the non-developer
mass market about these sorts of features prior to their
incorporation?
