Hi Jeremy

Ubuntu Kylin is the successor to the Project Qin work that became the
Ubuntu Chinese Edition.

The team behind Kylin are keen to extend Ubuntu to integrate Chinese
social media, content streams, payment systems, and the like. We agreed
to support this work and collaborate with the team, to ensure that the
result can be supportable and installed by OEMs. If this works, we
imagine government teams in other countries would want to do the same
thing, and our role is to ensure that quality and consistency and
security are robust across all flavours of the platform.
