Ubuntu 12.04 is an Long Term Support (LTS) release. LTS releases generally attracts more people to the Ubuntu Community due to its importance, support (5 years) and its stability. And Ubuntu 12.04 is no exception to this. While the Ubuntu developers are working hard to polish Ubuntu, we the community can contribute in other ways. One such way is to bring out an easy to read Ubuntu Manual for new users to Ubuntu. This will benefit the users new to Ubuntu and Unity (users upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04).
We have decided to publish an Ubuntu Manual which covers a wide range of topics from obtaining Ubuntu all the way to customizing Ubuntu. This however is a huge task and need the help of the Muktware Community of readers! Any contribution small or big would be appreciated.
After all, this will truly be an Ubuntu Manual made by the Community for the Community.

- Look at the table of contents of the manual here. See what needs to be done.
- Start working on it
- Send in your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
