Hello Technical Board,

I’m Joshua Peisach, the lead of the Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix (https://ubuntucinnamon.org, https://twitter.com/UbuntuCinnamon). For almost three years now, the Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix team have maintained Ubuntu Cinnamon through seven releases since 19.10. We have also maintained the project through contributing to security uploads relevant to Cinnamon (see caribou CVE-2021-3567), and have been maintaining Cinnamon in Debian with Fabio Fantoni and the Debian Cinnamon Team. (https://salsa.debian.org/cinnamon-team)

Considering the amount of time that has passed, the current relationship with Ubuntu Cinnamon and the Ubuntu community, we are applying for official flavor status, starting with our 23.04 “Lunar Lobster” release. (Proposal: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuCinnamon/23.04/Proposal)

We have many people on the team, along with several MOTUs. Other than myself, fossfreedom has helped us with maintenance of the Nemo file manager, Jeremy Bicha, Simon Quigley and Erich Eickmeyer are all MOTU’s for our uploads, and I am also talking with Aaron Rainbolt as we both continue our Ubuntu journey together. We also have worked with Phillipp and Monica from the Community Team, all current existing leads (especially rs2009, Martin Wimpress and Rik Mills), and work with the Yaru team towards maintaining Cinnamon theme support. There is also Initu Castilhos, who has also helped with the ‘Cinnamon’ color variant of the Yaru theme. There are plenty of developers and contributors that will ensure Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix remains stable with high quality assurance.

I am looking forward towards the application process, and official flavor status.
