[lubuntu-devel] LXQt

I find it rather alarming and surprising to hear the notion that we do not
plan on even trying to ship Lubuntu with LXQt for Yakkety. This is a marked
change from everything I've been hearing.

That being said, I'd like to hear some more clarity on why and what exactly
the plan is. That being said, conversation logs are essential. It's
annoying that private channels seem to be appropriate places to decide such
sweeping turn of events.

Including the rest of the team in such discussions is imperative in order
to not undermine the team. An IRC meeting is a good forum for such things.
If this is not possible, the next best thing is a summary to the public
mailing list with reference to the logs of the conversation.

Anything else lacks transparency and ultimately violates the core of what
an open source project is. We have few members in our team and we risk
losing them if we continue to practice this way.

If the media was aware of this, there would certainly be a public outcry.
Regardless of intentions, this is not very open.
