Wow, thanks so much to everyone who posted such nice comments, sent such nice emails and made such nice phone calls. I am quite touched by the amount of support you lovely people have given me. Thanks.
I have already had some really awesome feedback about issues and areas in which the Ubuntu community could be clarified, buffed up or improved. This includes:
- The relationship between Debian and Ubuntu.
- The potential divide between Canonical employees and volunteers.
- The prioritisation of different skills in the project, and how artists, documentation writers, developers, testers, bug reporters and others are treated.
- The public face of Ubuntu and concerns that Canonical will over-commercialise Ubuntu and take the community spirit away like other distributors have done in the past.
I am still keen to hear more, so do post your comments.
