Yes I think they should,

I've passed onto Julien Alex's details. Please bear in mind that this was
just as the release came up, followed by UDS-R. The original email was to
just say the tracking of things as far as I had got and that I had
forgotten all those who have mentioned about the need to be able to get
updates for Chromium.

Feel free to ping towolf and see if we can get them to have a chat.


P.S. Please use the 'reply to all option', it makes sure all the lubuntu
people are fully updated and can join a conversation.
