Hi Dana,

Jaromil was referring to Ubuntu a.k.a. Canonical Ltd. offering bounties, 
rather than your Ubuntu Studio project.

I do think that there is bound to be a certain amount of friction within 
  the free software community whenever money is involved. No different 
from any other human endeavour, then...

I have only met Mark Shuttleworth once, and that was very brief, but I 
do believe his commitment to free software to be both significant and 
genuine. I also understand Canonical's need for some sort of structure 
or roadmap when paying bounties. However I can also see the potential 
for payments to hackers to be divisive, when so many people contribute 
their time for free.

> If you want me to withdraw my project from this group, then fine.

No-one's suggesting that - we're glad to have you on board.
