I don't agree with either conjecture here.  Debian's difficulties in release
management are not due to intolerance for bugs, and KDE is not a factor in
whether scim is supported in Ubuntu or not.

If you can help us get scim working well in Ubuntu, I would welcome that.
If you are not a developer yourself, but are concerned about a lack of
manpower in Ubuntu for the specific projects you feel are important, perhaps
you could help to recruit new Ubuntu developers with similar interests.
