The google custom search - perhaps it went there by itself?

Sebastian: did you notice another message that has been there for one 
year? I already told in previous messages that time is not an excuse for 
that reason, but let me link it:


http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-devel-discuss@lists.ubuntu.com/msg04111.html

An important topic may also deserve a timely clarification, even if that 
other message had not been there for more than one year. We all are 
busy. Me too. I do real work, but sometimes I prioritize important 
things. Maybe this issue is just not important for ubuntu, we shall see.

For me it is urgent: I need to know if it's worth keeping contributing 
to ubuntu or not, because if principles did not come before technical 
merits for me, 12 years ago, when gnome and kde did not exist, I would 
have stayed with windows, or perhaps I'd have gotten a mac.

I contacted the ubuntu mozilla team, as you suggest, and did not get any 
reply. A bug does not make sense here because mine is a question, not a 
bug report.

Do you know anything about the search page? If so, tell us, if not, you 
are confirming my theory, not the opposite.

Vincenzo
