So the peeps over in the Ubuntu-ZA loco has been busy lately and are trying to help build platforms to unite Ubuntu users all over the African continent.
From Miles Sharps (kilos on freenode) post:
The idea was to try to link all LoCos in Africa in one channel so we can share experience and expertise and grow Ubuntu in the whole of Africa. I was rather shocked to find that apart from the ZA team on #ubuntu-za the rest of the continents LoCos had kinda faded away. But half of them now join us on #ubuntu-africa.
After a few weeks of trying to round up the Ubuntu LoCos in Africa and get them to join us on IRC, the Ubuntu-za team decided that having a site to help locate and attract Ubuntu users in Africa could be helpful. With superfly guiding us and doing the ground work using bzr and Nikola then inepro, mopkop and pieter2627 worked on the content. The result of which is http://ubuntu-africa.info
So please feel free to join Africa in #ubuntu-africa on freenode and also check out http://ubuntu-africa.info
