I second this. Maybe i'm missing some essential part of the structure of
the organisation? I thought ubuntustudio was sort of a quality filter
for programs that many different independent entities are developing?
Like a bunch of specialist lego builder, drawing a map for each and
everyone to be able to build an almost perfect spaceship. I can't wrap
my head around the issue. However i bend the question i hear something
like: "Going independent from an independent entity."

Ok, we are imposed to respect some rules and procedures stipulated by
canonical. I'm not much of an obeyer, but to some extend I think it's a
good thing. First, because to create something you need to define a
space where this game take place, like Georges Perrec eloquently writes
in "Species of Spaces". Second, because restrictions on what can be
edited on the websites and what can be included in the repository, is a
way to guarantee that we, as a group publish things with regards to the
will of the GROUP. Not just one or a few of us. Heck! To be alarmist,
isn't it also a way to garantee that no malicious code is being entered?
That the download links for ISO's are not edited to mirror some

I think i have emptied my mind on this topic. I encourage anyone to
follow their vision.

Now i'm going to try test the new UbuntuStudio controls.
