A big congratulations to them! If you want to give them your kudos, I
urge you to do so on [this post] on our Discourse forum at community.ubuntu.com.
The local community ([LoCo]) project is an international effort which
strives to evangelize and support the Ubuntu project around the world.
The LoCo Council acts on the delegation of the [Community Council] to
support this worldwide movement. Most notably they have been involved in
reviewing verification requests.
The Community Council will be working closely with the LoCo Council in
the upcoming months to give new value to both the LoCo project and the
LoCo Council itself, so exciting times are ahead!
