Dear Ubuntu Kernel team / Ubuntu Bug Control:

I am e-mailing to inquire about the status of VMWare products (ex.
VMWare Workstation, VMWare Player) bug support on Launchpad.
Currently, three linux (Ubuntu) reports have been filed with kernel
oops bugs using VMWare products:

However, since VMWare Player has been removed from the repositories:

It is unclear to me if Ubuntu provides fixes for bugs in VMWare kernel
modules, or would the reporters need to seek support from VMWare
directly. For example, Fedora does not provide this type of support:

What do you think?

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter and I look
forward to your response.
