Thanks for pointing this out. We're aware of this within the team, and
we're working with the Release Team to get a solution. We'll likely have
to respin the 17.10 ISOs after the fact as a result of this.

We're on Twitter at http://twitter.com/LubuntuOfficial or on Telegram at
http://t.me/lubuntudevel (that's bridged to #lubuntu-devel on freenode
and Matrix (#lubuntu:disroot.org)), updates will likely come first there.

Thanks again!
