Hi Everyone,

I am sorry to hear about the problems that are occurring around this
topic. I am conscious to see how we can drive towards a solution that
can satisfy as many of the technical and policy issues that are being
cited in this bug report. Many points have been raised throughout this
conversation and while there is clearly passion in the air, I appreciate
the constructive feedback that has been raised here. I would just ask
that we focus our passion on solutions as opposed to tension.

I can assure you all there is no conspiracy, no cabal, no secret
handshakes. The Canonical that has been a primary sponsor of the Ubuntu
project is little different today as it was at the beginning of the
project in terms of how it prioritizes and works with the community.
While I am not expecting you to take my word for it, I would simply ask
you to look at the history of Canonical's engagement with the Ubuntu
project. Sure, there are bumps in the road, this is the nature of any
project and company that has seen such extensive growth, but I think as
a general rule of thumb, Canonical's engagement has been positive. What
is important to me is that we continue to have a positive working
relationship, and that we not only investigate areas of concern but also
make adjustments and improvements where required.

In terms of this specific issue, I am checking in with our staff and the
community to see how we can move this topic forward. Right now Alexander
Sack is doing the same, and Rick Spencer is currently on vacation, so
expect a bit of radio silence from him until he returns. I can assure
you that this is very much on the radar. I appreciate everyone's
patience on this.
