Roles are a great opportunity to boost your profile and personal contribution to Kubuntu. They provide a guide on how and where to get involved. In addition to helping the community, you can add your role within Kubuntu as a valid resume experience and an aspect of your overall career path.
Indeed, the roles descriptions are deliberately written in the format of a job description, and you can, and should use these to describe your contributions to Kubuntu.
A lead community role within Kubuntu requires you first to become a Kubuntu Member
Once you are a Kubuntu Member you can apply to take on a community role. These roles have a minimum term of 6 months, and you have first refusal for re-application after each term.
The roles set out the overall objectives and responsibilities for the role, and provide a list of the functional duties that role performs. It also details how the role interacts with other roles within the communities. Role owners always report back to the Kubuntu Council members who provide the final authorisation on an action. However, the council encourages a do-ocracy and expects role owners to abide by the Kubuntu Consititution and follow the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.
