The future of Kubuntu

Recent messages from Kubuntu devs have been increasingly annoying.

They constantly complain about uncertainty caused by Mir. Well, it's
reasonable. But the problem is that no single piece of concrete
research is done or published. Have they measured performance degrade?
Have they observed unexpected crash? Have they reported bugs /
contacted Mir devs thereafter?

They seem to believe in Wayland. That's absolutely fine. And then they
repeat " And maintaining Wayland in the ubuntu archives will be
fiddly, even if it is mostly a sync from Debian." whining. Well, Sir,
if you have no confidence maintaining a handful of packages, why are
you maintaining a distro spin?

Given the current small manpower of Kubuntu and the staff's
unhappiness with Canonical. I feel that declaring Kubuntu orphaned is
a pretty good option. Most end users are uninformed, after all.
