I haven't replied until now as I thought others had said all I wanted  
to say but in the last few hours I've actually received a  
communication to say that may be there could be a use for the Kubuntu  
test cases. There might be some considerable work involved in getting  
them used and the results analysed though.

I'm obviously out of my depth here and sincerely apologise for marking  
so many bugs as invalid without reference to yourself although I will  
say that I was prompted to do so and fully agreed with that advice by  
taking the action that I took. :)

Before I do any further damage I'm going back to being a humble user,  
leaving the role of being a contributor to those that are better  
equipped to deal with such decisions.

I may not see any reply that you make as I'm not only resigning from  
the team but un-subscribing from the mailing list.

Once again, my apologies.
