Your email seems to have been overlooked in the rush to get ready for
Akademy, the KDE annual meeting where some of us are now gathered. I'm
sorry I didn't reply a month ago and invite you to meet with us.
However, you can still connect via IRC (freenode, #kubuntu-devel) and
Telegram if you use that.

We'll be meeting Wed and Thursday to discuss the future direction of Kubuntu.

All the best,
