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.

Spotlight: Ubuntu Server Office Hours

As proposed, the Ubuntu Server team will now host weekly office hours in the #ubuntu-server IRC channel. The Canonical Server team will be present during these office hours to discuss and work-through any questions or bugs about Ubuntu Server. The office hours will replace the previous structured IRC meeting, but continue to occur at the same time: Tuesdays at 1600 UTC.
