Some of the hottest questions for the month of May:
- How to understand the Ubuntu file system layout?
- How do I add a DNS server via resolv.conf?
- Promoting an app in the Ubuntu software-center through a ratings and reviews API
- Is Seagate’s new “FAST Factor Boot” technology compatible with Ubuntu?
Earlier today, we just reached yet another milestone of 50,000 questions. With almost 55,000 registered users, Ask Ubuntu has been growing from strength to strength since it was launched in October 2010.
Deeper integration with the IRC community
With plans to get Ask Ubuntu integrated with the rest of the community, preliminary steps towards that have already been kickstarted. Community member Amith KK has implemented a preliminary bot setup that posts links to the questions that have specific tags. His bot twobottux is currently serving #ubuntu-community-team, #juju and #application-development. If you are interested in having this bot in your room, please do let us know.
