I read the meeting logs as I do each week (being a UTC+10 makes most
international meetings difficult) and my first reaction is the one
that's always been there just growing more stronger recently. The
questions I'd like to see answered are:
* why do we have a need for such segregated community that we need
subteams for such an already small team of active contributors?
* what do the other flavours or *buntu do for community governance
(Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, etc - I looked around online and found
one document that I'm told is out of date)?
* is there a problem with reverting back to how it was pre sub-team
and having a community that assists each other to achieve great
* if there is something about Lubuntu that needs community discussion
and direction, why aren't we using the already standard practice of
raising bugs for wishlist things and things that aren't working to the
best of their ability?

I've got opinions on them all obviously and I'm not stating that mine
are correct. I just want people to contemplate, are we making this
harder on ourselves than we really need to?
