Or improving existing support, making it better.  Which means "better 
support".  The wheel doesn't have to be reinvented every time.  You're 
smarter than that.

"Money" is not an action item.  In order to spend it, there have to be 
tangible goals or targets that funds will help realize.  This can 
manifest in a billion different ways, but if Kubuntu had no requests to 
make against the donations collected, it seems silly to complain that 
Kubuntu hasn't seen the money directly.

Kubuntu had none of its funding requests accepted.  It also had all of 
its funding requests accepted.  I get the vague feeling from the 
discussion at hand that Kubuntu didn't have a need for additional funding.

But whether they did or not, this is still a discussion to be had 
between Kubuntu developers and Canonical.  Perhaps the Community Team as 
a starting point.

Not volunteer event organizers.
