What's so funny about someone not being able to develop his projects on Ubuntu ?
Probably >50% of the universe packages do not have a global scope,
however their are important enough for their developers/users so that
a lof of people works hard to have those packages available in a good
shape on each Ubuntu release.
Please STOP being disrespectful for other people.

I also believe that there should be a list of the packages which are
removed linked from the release notes, it can be an adoption blocker.
A good option would be to link to a wiki page, that would allow other
people to provide workarounds when available.
