UBUNTU --
Canonical is back to working on the Launchpad.net code, their website that pairs code hosting with bug tacking, translations, blueprints, and more.

Launchpad has been "running more or less in maintenance mode", but now Canonical is back to investing resources into it for adding in new functionality, etc. With Launchpad there's now Git code hosting support and various new features there, code review improvements, improvements to the package build infrastructure, and better performance thanks to database server upgrades.

More improvements for Launchpad are planned but they have limited developers involved and are hoping for some community support in cleaning up this web service that's central to Ubuntu development (and thousands of other projects). More details on this recent Launchpad work can be found via the Launchpad blog with a posting this morning by Colin Watson.
