A lot of new blog posts has come up on Planet Ubuntu yesterday. Here are my responses.
Of course Canonical doesn’t kill people. What I’m trying to say by denoting Canonical the “Big Brother” is that they are ignoring the community’s feelings. Or rather, they are sort of ignoring the “old community”‘s feelings. They just do whatever they want and don’t fully consider the different stakeholders (developers, testers, documentation writers, deriative people and all users) in the world of Ubuntu. Canonical is a commercial company I know, but then I’m now starting to worry about freedom in the Ubuntu world.
My main sponsor for KDE apps packaging, thank you for killing the whole Ubuntu community more.
I do not go against the project lead in normal circumstances, but both Lubuntu and Xubuntu people were alarmed. We should be more unified, not less.
Elizabeth (or the Community Council) I don’t blame you at all. After all, it was Canonical who wants a new sort of community, so why would it tell the old community about their plans till absolutely necessary?
This is what I have been thinking about. I remembered playing with Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) Alphas 1 & 2 testing the whole night. It doesn’t feel worthwhile now, and this just makes me think I have wasted time for nothing.
Our Ubuntu Studio project lead is correct. The community is still here, it’s just different.
No what they want to run is
pbuilder-dist community delete
pbuilder-dist raring delete
pbuilder-dist rolling create
Just my 2 cents.
