This is the Launchpad Help site, a wiki that includes helpful tips, documentation, notices and other information for users of Launchpad.
Launchpad is a tool for collaboration between different projects. It makes it easier for people who work on a variety of free software projects, in particular, to share information about bugs, features and translations. Launchpad is used by Ubuntu and other distributions for bug tracking, translations and release feature planning. It is also used by "upstream" projects in the same way, and it makes collaborating between all these projects very easy.
