Everyone, if you encounter any bugs or issues you have with the phone,
please file bug reports in Launchpad, or contact bq's support (if you
are using a the bq Ubuntu phone) to raise the issues. This mailing list
is not an issue tracking system, and all the developers of the software
in question may not be subscribed to this list, so we cannot use it to
track issues related to the phone, or any other aspect of Ubuntu. This
list is for general discussion about general Ubuntu development. Filing
the bugs in Launchpad directly will also give you much more visibility
on their progress, and you will be able to see when they get targeted
for an OTA release and such.

Thanks. :)
