Please make calligra optional (i.e. recommends instead of depends) as libreoffice was.

Kopete is still in the kickoff favorite applications.

Imho lightdm-kde still has critical bugs that make it unfit for Kubuntu
so I would have waited until they are addressed.

This seems like another rushed change without discussion. The new solution
doesn't support installing translation packages for anything other than the
default Kubuntu applications. Support for installing input methods, dictionaries
and also setting the system language is completely missing.
Even when Ubuntu ditches the language-selector frontend the data currently
provided by /usr/share/language-selector/data/pkg_depends will still be available.
