How do I create a sub-team?

Asked by Valorie Zimmerman on 2018-11-26

I swear we've done this before, but trying things like or /+newteam don't work and I don't see how to do it within the kubuntu-council page, nor could I see how to set up up a private team as *me* and make the Council own it.

We want a Kubuntu Social Team, private, with a private mail list so that we can use that email for our twitter, mastodon, facebook etc and not lose control of those accounts when someone disappears. We can't have it public or the possible password resets would be in public too.

All the best,

~kubuntu-council is itself a team so it doesn't make sense to create a team within it. The URL you want is Once the team has been created you can change the owner to ~kubuntu-council.

Private teams aren't generally available to open source projects on Launchpad by default, but Kubuntu already has a few private resources so you may see the Private visibility option on the creation page. If not, let us know and we'll sort it out.

Thanks for the answer. has been created. I see no way to change ownership or ensure that a list for it will have private (or no) archives.
