Kubuntu Council Elections 2013 - Nominations Closed

Valorie (and the other 3 election candidates) I have no problems asking
questions over e-mail. So, here are my two questions:

1. After Canonical decided not to sponsor the Kubuntu Project, Kubuntu
seems more unwelcoming to Canonical decisions. For example, on the vUDS +
rolling release affair, both Jonathan Riddell (Riddell) and Harald Sitter
(apachelogger) wrote blog posts that even alarmed Mark Shuttleworth
(sabdfl) to reply. How would you try to improve the relations between
Kubuntu and the general Ubuntu Community, or even better, Canonical?

2. Jonathan's blog post (
http://blogs.kde.org/2013/03/06/ubuntu-community-community) has made some
other Ubuntu official distributions a bit worried. There are IRC
discussions in Xubuntu's development channel and mailing list discussions
in Lubuntu's mailing lists. For most of them discussing, they felt unhappy.
Of course Jonathan has disclaimed that he isn't trying to tether up
relations with other people or flavours (I believe that), but then, how
would you try to establish better relations with other flavours?

I hope that my questions will not be too difficult to be answered and hope
that Riddell won't kill me:P
