I'd like to apply for the Kubuntu Council as well. My primary
responsibilities in Kubuntu right now are to maintain the KDE SC
packaging along with my fellow developers and providing end user
support in #kubuntu, I also hack on some upstream KDE projects

In the future I'd primarily like to focus on automating more things
like we've done over the last couple of months with our packaging and
upgrade testing. This should ideally expand to include automated ISO
testing using preseeds so as to ensure a better daily quality.

As part of the council I'd primarily like to make sure we have awesome
relations with upstream KDE and make sure Kubuntu becomes the premier
distribution for KDE Software.
