The registry is a core domain that most all Launchpad applications require. The code is primarily located in lp.registry and lp.services.mailman.
The developers with the most experience developing registry components were:
Pillars are are distributions, projects and project groups. They share a common set of features. Talk to J.C. Curtis, Brad.
- Name Blacklist: The rules that prevent names for being used either because of application restrictions or organisational ownership.
- Announcements: They appear on pages and in RSS.
- Application Configuration: The pages that allow owners to set where services are hosted and configure Launchpad usage.
Projects commonly product software, art, or some work that can be used. Projects have maintainers, and drivers, but are shared by communities who make contributions according to their own interests. Talk to Brad and Curtis.
- Licenses: The terms that govern the use, distribution and modification
of the work produced by the project.
- Commercial subscriptions: The rules that permits proprietary projects to use Launchpad.
- Project groups: A grouping of projects that provides aggregated views of bugs, blueprints, and answers. The group drivers are drivers of the projects.
Ubuntu's releases are mirrored by other sites. Talk to Johnathan Davies, Curtis, and Salgado.
- Mirrors: CD and archive mirrors of distribution releases.
- Distribution mirror prober: The process that checks the freshness of mirrors.
Series, Milestones, and releases
Projects and distributions have series of milestones that mark progress toward a goal (releases). Project releases are often associated with tarballs or installers. Talk to Curtis and Brad about these components.
- Series: A sequence or grouping of goals that constitute an planned effort to produce a finished work.
- Milestones: time-bases or feature-based goals.
- Releases: A completed goal that culminated in a release of files that may by finished or be in an alpha or beta state.
- Product release finder: A process to locates release files on remote sites and uploads them to Launchpad, possibly creating milestone and releases on series.
- timelines: A representation of series, releases, and timelines.
Distribution and distro series source packages summarise current and historical uploads of packages. Talk to Curtis, J.C., and William Grant.

Persons are users or teams registered either by a human or an import process. Person may own, manage, or interact with Launchpad artefacts.
Users represent a person. Most are registered by processes. Some users are active, meaning that a human may authenticate to assume the identity of a person. Talk to Curtis, Brad, J.C.
- Wiki name
- Code of Conduct
Teams represents a group of users that discuss common issues or may control Launchpad artefacts. Teams are mostly registered by users, though some may be registered by an import process. Talk to Curtis, Brad, J.C.
