NEW reviews needed for Kubuntu [was: Kubuntu required package-set updates for Zesty (17.04)]

Hi folks - thanks for the nudge, let's climb in to help Kubuntu clear
these items through NEW.

Also, I believe there has been good progress on KDE snapping, which
bypasses the archive integration thanks to isolation. Not sure if we are
ready to make that as a standard recommendation (would look to relevant
upstreams to say) but it's definitely an easier process for everybody
once it's enabled. With snapd 2.23 there are delta updates to make
updating snaps faster than debs, and I think the content-sharing work
now allows for upstream to manage a shared build of KDE and Qt libraries
that such snaps can share.

We can also enable snaps to be pre-installed in the image, that would be
widely useful.
