Ubuntu Community Council Asks the Kubuntu Project Leader to Step Down

Jonathan Riddell, which is both a KDE and Kubuntu developer, as well as an important member of the Ubuntu community for many years now, is being accused by several members of the Ubuntu and Kubuntu community about his confrontational and aggressive behavior towards them, as the email exchanges exposed today by Scott Kitterman suggest. Long story short, after several email exchanges, the final decision of the Ubuntu Community Council, which is also backed by Canonical and Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth, was for Jonathan Riddell to step down from all his positions as a leader within the Ubuntu and Kubuntu communities.
