The budget is also for other people? How makes the decision who get
supported who not ?

The Server is too busy in order to run in a virtual instance.
Other people can also upload ? or it's just you and me?  Why access should be
limited ? That always keep us busy. I've no problem if people contribute.
What will happen if you're on a holliday trip, i'm busy with my job ?  
Or we both go to the Octoberfest :)

Mark wanted not to invest a lot of money into kubuntu after hoary release, and 
he decided it will be a community only release after breezy he stated during 
UBZ something different?

Probably you missunderstood :) 
Free as downloading at no cost isn't accepable for me, please understand Free 
Software is my live, that is what i'm living for.

so what's the case? We could have sponsors which are ready to pump some really 
good money into the project, money and manpower, but then kubuntu has to 
be free from all ties with canonical. 

What's about the idea to start an Kubuntu free fork ?
