Poor phrasing on my part.  Like I clarified later this isn't intended to
replace any of our own infrastructure, there's features we require that
aren't yet implemented.  Some are in the works already, others may be
worth proposing as follow on work.

I'm not not a launchpad developer, however I am attempting to help
improve the transparency between ubuntu and launchpad.  I want to help
raise feedback from ubuntu folks with the launchpad devs so our needs
get appropriate prioritization, and also figure folks on this list would
appreciate having some heads up on coming changes to Launchpad.
Sometimes the changes have implications to our own workflows, so I
figure the earlier we recognize the implications the easier we can
handle them.

Certainly the last thing I want to do is demotivate anyone or cause
dissention on ubuntu-devel@; if that's the case, the added transparency
probably isn't worth it.
