We do have a formal relationship with the Kylin team. I appreciate the
sensitivity, which is why we've coached this team to engage publicly
with the Ubuntu community as well as with Canonical (and here they
are!). We welcome contributions to free software from all sources, and
we should judge contributors by their actions, not perceptions which can
easily be incorrect.

In this case, the team have been very receptive to transparent practices
- they were at UDS, they are here now, and I've no doubt they would
appreciate your guidance as a long-standing member of the community as
to the best way to improve the platform. As always, expect an onramp,
and niggles, but I would ask that we not pre-judge the effort.
