This shouldn't be a particularly big surprise; Canonical supports our
flavors with infrastructure, but we primarily focus our engineering
and community team staff members on Ubuntu.

If we had more resources we would love to provide help for the
flavors, and we are certainly happy to offer any guidance and advice,
with with our current resources and staffing, Nick doesn't have the
bandwidth to handle more the than the Ubuntu ISOs and associated
testing. Saying that, I know Nick is in contact with many of the
flavors to ensure they get the support they need to set up their own
comprehensive testing plans.
