As usual we are open to reconsider decisions. However, I think it's
unlikely that we will change our decision for karmic as feature freeze
is ahead.

We forwarded a few bugs which did not get a timely reply ... Also I
tried to talk to discuss with blueman devs a few times on IRC
explicitly saying that we are looking into making his app the default
in ubuntu, but they never (except for the first time) came back to me.

Personally, I felt that blueman is a pretty promissing app; but the
lack of responsiveness on the issues we raised didn't really help
pushing a decision in favour of blueman.

In any case, I would still be happy to see the working relationship
with blueman improve in future. If you want to help with that,
talk to me on IRC.
