Canonical has a team to deal with these community issues and this is
the list to discuss it on. We're waiting for an answer to the simple
question of what happened to the donations for better support of
flavours fromoct 2012 to june 2013.  So far Michael hasn't said what
he understands and Daniel has said it was spent on existing budgets.
There's been 3 years to deal with this and the response so far is not
acceptable.  Any suggestion that it's acceptable to take donations for
a project without consulting with that project on doing so or spending
it is nonsense.  A suggestion that it's acceptable to but it to other
use because you've decided it's not really needed is just stupid and I
doubt anyone else with give it credence.
