No, nobody is making anyone read any emails. This list is for helping
one another, and seems to not be doing that right now.

This is why we support LTS for so long -- so people who need stability
can HAVE that.

We tested, and it was NOT problematic, merely missing a few bits.

Everyone should use the tools that please them, and help them do what
they want. If it is Windows, fine. Mac, great! If it is Kubuntu,
welcome to the community where we all help one another out.

We do not *ever* advocate every Kubuntu user to upgrade when they are
happy with what they have. Plasma 5.3 is running very well for me.
Please please please file bugs when you encounter them, or comment on
already filed bug reports, in launchpad if it is packaging mistakes,
in bugs.kde.org for problems upstream.

If you don't know how to file a bug, or need help figuring out the
component names, where to file, etc. -- please ask here on the list
and we will help out. The developers and maintainers need bug reports
and high quality information.

IRC is another good place to ask for help filing bugs: #kubuntu on
freenode. One of the best hints, if you know the packagename:
`ubuntu-bug packagename` in the konsole. Easy-peasy, and all the
relevant information is collected automatically.
