Can't find "Nominate for release"; how do I SRU now?

Asked by era

I wanted to propose bug #533549 for SRU and read the instructions at but the "Nominate for release" option no longer seems to exist in Launchpad. Is the documentation obsolete, or am I doing something wrong, or is there a problem in Launchpad?

The documentation is out of date. The action was renamed a few weeks ago and the permissions were changed a few weeks ago.

Bug supervisors see "Nominate for series", drivers see Target to series. Users who are not members of project cannot nominate.

I think you need to contact an Ubuntu bug supervisors. I do not see a patch attached to the bug. I believe Ubuntu bug supervisors watch for patches and escalate them for users.

Adding some information here about bug supervisors. They differ by project. As you can see on the bug supervisors for the ubuntu project itself is a group called ubuntu-bugs at Maybe one of the better ways to get their attention is via the IRC channel #ubuntu-bugs where you may want to request a nomination for a particular series when you need it.

I will update the above wiki page now to reflect the latest information.

How do i actually contact the "Ubuntu bug supervisors", this answer does not indicate how they are and how they can be contacted.
