Hello Devs!

I am so thankful for the amazing work you all do.  I am not a developer by
any means, but more an end user concerned with usability.  It was suggested
on the Ayatana mailing list that I pose my question and seek some help here.

By default, Ubuntu used the gnome-bluetooth package.  Frankly, there is very
little this package does well.  The GUI is poorly designed, and I think it's
quite confusing, leaving me to do most configurations by the command line.

I found that by using blueman instead, the usability of bluetooth on my
desktop now rivals what I have see from Mac OS X.  A good GUI, lots of
options, and a very fast client overall.

What would I have to do to petition that blueman replace gnome-bluetooth
going forward?

Thank you,
