Overall, it's been working fine for the last 16 years.

What do you think the changes you are proposing can gain us?

I don't believe in the "upstreams will care" stuff (there are good
examples of upstreams not giving a damn about distributors over the
past months) and I don't believe in the 100% end-user-centric focus
you're displaying in your mail.

Once I've removed that from your mail, and the "but Ubuntu loves you!"
stuff, there's nothing left.
