Same here.

A possible problem that might arise in terms of upload rights is that a
certain kde package is not in the kubuntu packageset, but that a person
interested in kde/qt does not have a broad enough interest in everything
else that MOTU is appropriate for them. This might also be true for
server of gnome desktop people. Maybe this should be brought up with the
TB or DMB?

I have worked with Fabrice before and I'm sorry for him to be center of
the discussion right now, I'm convinced he didn't want to push somebody

It seems like there's more general things that should be discussed and
maybe fixed, but that's not what happens in the thread. Can we please
discuss more general problems and try to fix them please?

Do we think it's unclear which discussion should/could happen in
#ubuntu-motu vs #kubuntu-devel, #ubuntu-server, #ubuntu-desktop, etc.?
Should we try to harmonise various initiatives that are happening in

How can we bridge this perceived gap somehow?

Have a great day,
