"Kubuntu maintained packages will be moving from Main to
Universe. This will allow the community to have larger control of
what Kubuntu will look like. We will no longer have to run to
Canonical to get approval for software. This will also allow us to
align more toward KDE without running into any conflicts of vision
"This will allow the community to run full control of Kubuntu.
Instead of this being a bad thing, we, the community have been let
off the leash so to speak. This is something that I fully expect
the developers to take on and run with.
"Overall, this new arrangement will bring Kubuntu to new
heights. With taking off the restrictions and allowing the
community to fully run the show, Kubuntu will not only move forward
but, I fully expect to see Kubuntu rise above and be more
successful then ever before."
