Thanks for making those changes.

I am not keen on the approach of maintaining copies under kubuntu/ of
only a slightly modified part of the javascript library, the rest of
it completely unmodified, and some of the slides.  If we make the
smallest of changes, we have to make them in two places, and my
experience with oem-config and ubiquity leads me to believe that we'll
often forget.  Can you not refactor this so the modification is
layered on top of the common code, and that shared pages are generated
in both build directories at build time?

You're missing a copyright notice for the Kubuntu logo.

Also, I would argue that we shouldn't keep the UI files in this
package.  It should simply be content viewable in a browser, not a
special widget.  Leave the task of creating a UI to ubiquity.
