Hi Paulo, good to hear from you. To be clear, Riddell has not left; he
has just left his position as release manager. Philip (yofel) and
Scarlett (sgclark) have taken on that job.

Yes, we are very short of packagers right now. For instance, Plasma
5.5 has been released:


and right now we have nobody with time to package it up. It needs to
be packaged for Xenial first, then backported to 15.10.

Drop into #kubuntu-devel for more information.

All the best,
