Ubuntu-ZA Competition

Update: Congratulations Jan Kroeze who wins the book and Michael Chadbourne who wins the t-shirt!

Update: deadline extended to 4 May

Ubuntu Book Cover
At the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Mountain View, I got a copy of The Official Ubuntu Book autographed by some of the authors, as a prize for a competition to promote participation in the Ubuntu South Africa LoCoTeam. Since nobody has proposed a competition, here goes…

The book is autographed by Mako Hill, Jono Bacon and Ivan Krstic. To win this prize, you need to make a page for yourself on the Ubuntu South Africa wiki, telling us a little about yourself – how long you have used Ubuntu and what for – and some way to contact you.

To create the page, make a WikiName out of your name (mine is MorganCollett). Then go to http://www.ubuntu-za.org/Wiki/<your WikiName> – for example, mine is at http://www.ubuntu-za.org/Wiki/MorganCollett. You will be prompted to create the page. See my page for some ideas of what to put there…

Then go to MembersList and edit the page to add your name, with a link to your page – just copy and adapt one of the existing entries.

Don’t worry about making mistakes! We have a team of people keeping an eye on the site to correct or clean up any problems and/or help you fix them…


  • The competition closes at midnight on 2 4 May – two weeks from today.
  • I’ll choose a winner at random from all the user pages linked from MembersList (that meet the criteria above).
  • The result will be announced in early May on the Ubuntu-ZA mailing list.
  • Anybody can enter but I will only post the prize to an address within South Africa.

I’ll burn and include a 7.04 CD of your choice, since the DVD with the book has Dapper on it.

Happy Wiki Editing!

Update: I now also have an Ubuntu t-shirt to give away – white, XL size. I’ll send this to the person who contributes the most interesting or creative addition to the Wiki during the same time period.
