we acknowledge that decision. As mentioned before, there is no way
influencing it other than being great. There has been a lot of discussion
about the KUbuntu decision making process, but I think there is no point in
following that further. On a more constructive note, I am extending my
offer to help KUbuntu to reevaluate in the future, as you have now
repeatedly put as one possible option.

I wanted to let you know that I can get a grasp of the situation KUbuntu is
in, being trapped in the middle of a distribution and your upstream. Being
invited to a new technology by your distribution (in the sense of base OS)
while having to argue with an upstream that doesn't support this technology
is certainly no fun and wearing.

Feel free to ping us if there is anything we can help with.
