Thanks for letting me know.  Disappointing. but anyway - thanks to all
that have sponsored the various packages for Ubuntu Budgie.  We have a
great release that I sure the Ubuntu community would be proud to see
for 17.04.

TB sent me to DMB ... I'll retry again with the TB to get the
package-set for Ubuntu Budgie defined.
