I've started our release announcement at

It still needs a lot of work. Once the release occurs, Vincent (or another
website editor) will copy the contents of the page to the website.

Great, thanks!

I agree with this assessment. Some releases are more noisy and energetic
then others. Its also true that there are a few bugs that I would have liked
to have gotten fixed and which will probably be SRU candidates. All around
including the other derivatives I think karmic introduces a lot of great
features, great bug fixes, but also introduces a number of feature
regressions and new bugs. This is necessary to make progress unfortunately.

Lastly, I think we've come closer together as a team and have learned how to
better work with each other. Theres a lot of value to that and I think Lucid
will be an absolutely amazing LTS release as a result.
