Jonathan Riddell (Kubuntu) demands your hugs

Jonathan Riddell, the main developer of Kubuntu (and of large chunks of Ubuntu) has scaled up his personal war on Canonical’s licensing of Intellectual Property: He now demands hugs from anyone who uses his.

Riddell has had his fair share of run-ins with Canonical over the years, the most recent of which had him expelled from the Ubuntu Community Council. They also demanded he be removed as the Kubuntu community leader, something, by the way, they have no authority to require.
