Launchpad is a web application and website that allows users to develop and maintain software, particularly open-source software. Not a lot of recruiters try to source there. The reason is simple they do not know how. Well to do this without worry you need go no further than into your bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, a simple search with some extras
So to source within Launchpad you simply need to use a skill known as xraying, like the one below.
site:launchpad.net "member since" Ubuntu
If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.
Now once you have your results you need to simply open the page then you then simply click on a user and then you can search for that user name, and find more info on them
If you need more info on X-raying see my blog post http://www.recruitingblogs.com/profiles/blogs/seeing-what-is-really...
