with full honesty, i feel the need to expose my regret in this
inclusion without stating certain points and sharing our opinions about
i have a problem with the assimilation role played by Ubuntu, which is
buying with money the many efforts and the independence of GNU/Linux
developers of today.
so far, the discussions have been many about the topic, so i won't push
further more arguments, just forward you an interesting situation that
might describe well a core (so called upstream in the debian jargon)
developer's point of view, in this case is Pippin from the Gimp , about
what he calls "dysfunctional bounties"
At last, I expect this consortium to play a role of fair redistribution
of resources in case Ubuntu attains membership.
thanks for your attention to such internal issues,
still important to many of us.
