Hey Brian,

Well, we decided to shift the focus to stability, and stay a cycle 
behind GNOME, before the touch work started. That decision was not based 
on the fact that we were too busy, but rather on the believe that users 
value stability over new versions.

Speaking about the Touch work, we don't see that as diverting efforts, 
but rather focussing efforts on what the futur of computing/Ubuntu is 
going to be like... sure it means the "old "stack is going to change 
less, but we are still bring fixes and improvements to it, while working 
on that transtions
