I think this is a terrible shame. A virtual event will result in far
less focused sessions. It will also remove the important community
bonding aspect of UDS.
An event with only a week's notice is pretty useless especially if it
clashes with significant dates like feature freeze.
Robbie blogged recently about removing non-LTS releases ("rolling
release"). I wonder if this three month UDS frequency is part of
that. Removing non-LTS releases will remove a lot of what makes
Ubuntu a great community project, cadance has always been a hallmark
These are probably good moves for Canonical's need to move to working
with businesses and keeping its bank balance healthy but they're very
bad moves for Ubuntu as a community project.
