That's not true at all, Launchpad and thus Rosetta is not all about
Ubuntu, Ubuntu is the main 'user' of Launchpad and Rosetta, but there
are other people using us outside Ubuntu.
For instance, zope: https://launchpad.net/zope , GOME Backer:
https://launchpad.net/gnomebaker and Schooltool:
I agree that coordination from Ubuntu with upstream not using Launchpad
directly is not perfect, but as Sebastian already pointed, we are
working hard to improve it every day.
