Launchpad is a supermarket of free software projects. As a project
owner, you can tell the world everything they need to know about your
work: where you track bugs, where you host your code, who’s involved,
the details of your release plans and more.
Free software community members and other projects can use Launchpad to either directly learn information about your project or use Launchpad’s extensive search to discover your work.
Launchpad calls these series and helps you to organise your work — code, translations, bug reports and so on — around them. Through series, your community can work in parallel on different major releases of your software.
By targeting bug reports and chunks of work to future releases, trusted members of your community can help you to create a light-weight roadmap for the future of your project.
Launchpad helps you to get your software to Ubuntu users, through Debian-style packages, and as direct binary downloads from your project’s Launchpad home page.
