If you wish to discuss this, please start a new thread. Replying to a
build failure and discussing something unrelated is thread hijacking and
is not welcome here.

Contrary to popular belief, the Ubuntu Studio team is not a very large
team. There are less than 10 of us total, and we do this in our spare
time. None of us are employed by Canonical or any other Linux
development company. We develop only the tools used to make Ubuntu
Studio what it is, which is to say the configuration and utilities such
as Ubuntu Studio Controls. We have no say in what goes into the rest of

Also contrary to popular belief, Ubuntu Studio is not a separate
distribution from Ubuntu, so anything that is included in Ubuntu can be
installed in Ubuntu Studio. There's a reason it's a "flavor" and not a
"derivative". We're just as happy to see people using Ubuntu as we are
Ubuntu Studio, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, or any other official flavor since they
are all Ubuntu.
