[ubuntu-uk] ac100 lubuntu

the ac100 has been pulled from release. Long story cut short.... I went
ballistic at them for releasing it when we marked it as "Do not release";
they are now trying to blame lubuntu for 'not supporting it'; when it was
never a lubuntu project.

I'm now spitting furious over this. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/TEGRA/AC100 has
the details of the device, we were asked if they could piggy back lubuntu
onto the install as ubuntu left too little room on the device.

I (lubuntu) was asked if they could 'use' lubuntu for the system because
ubuntu was too big to leave room for people to add things. I thought it
quite reasonable and asked our head of dev to approve it. As the so called
agreement was that arm look after it on the simple grounds that none of us
had a test machine, it was approved.

That they released 13.10 when marked as 'not for release' and then also

Releasing an image or not has no impact on whether users upgrade and find
themselves with a broken install afterwards.  If upgrades are not being
supported on Lubuntu ac100, it's up to the Lubuntu community to communicate
I do see that the image was incorrectly published without validation.  I've
withdrawn the image from the release now.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.

REALLY annoys me.

AFAIK, the 13.04 did work okay - but you would have to ask the dis-banded
arm team about that. Needless to say, after this incident ac100 is not on
lubuntu list anymore. I'm still struggling to work out how lubuntu got
blamed for it :(
