I think Launchpad was originally made as a developer tool, but it's
now been extended to other purposes.

Yes, absolutely! It's for discussion about the Ubuntu-UK team, and

Hope this helps.

Just a quick thank you to Neil and Ian for the replies.I will continue to tune in to this list. I also found kubuntu-users which I hadn't seen before. So I,ve signed up for that aswell.
I'll go and sign up on launchpad now in case there are any more votes.

Thanks again
