Since I haven't had any negative feedback on this, I am going to get
started drawing up a schedule for Ubuntu 10.10 and then I will see if
I can get all the right people on board for this to happen for that
version of Ubuntu (it is not certain that it can be achieved in time,
but I am going to give it a try). More to come soon.
