Riddell's statement should be regarded as official.  He is the Canonical
face of Kubuntu.  Presumably the tech board will also issue a statement.

This sort of discussion is useless.  Kubuntu Hardy will not be LTS, as
per the tech board's decision.  This will not change by people
complaining about it.  The tech board would never have decided (and
disclosed) this without extensive thought.  The task now is to decide
where Kubuntu should go, for this release, with the constraints that we
have, and will be discussed in tomorrow's meeting as well.
