Ubuntu Server development summary – 11 June 2019


Hello Ubuntu Server

The purpose of this communication is to provide a status update and highlights for any interesting subjects from the Ubuntu Server Team. If you would like to reach the server team, you can find us at the #ubuntu-server channel on Freenode. Alternatively, you can sign up and use the Ubuntu Server Team mailing list or visit the Ubuntu Server discourse hub for more discussion.

Spotlight: Bryce Harrington

Keeping with the theme of “bringing them back into the fold”, we are proud to announce that Bryce Harrington has rejoined Canonical on the Ubuntu Server team. In his former tenure at Canonical, he maintained the X.org stack for Ubuntu and helped bridge us from the old ‘edit your own xorg.org’ days, swatted GPU hang bugs on Intel, and contributed to Launchpad development.

Home-based in Oregon, with around 20 years of open source development experience. Bryce created the Inkscape project, and he is currently a board member of the X.org Foundation. He joins us most recently from Samsung Research America where he was a Senior Open Source Developer and the release manager for the Cairo and Wayland projects. Bryce will be helping us tackle the development and maintenance of Ubuntu Server packages. We are thrilled to have his additional expertise to help spread the wealth of software and packaging improvements that help make Ubuntu great. When he’s not building software, he is building things in his woodworking shop.

Welcome (back) Bryce (bryce on Freenode)!
