Well, we'll see. They had more than two years to notice that something's wrong (the downhill spiral started with Gutsy), and all I can see now is a big proclamation and a fancy name (actually, I AM a big fan of Doctor Who ;)

And looking at those point, fixing bug is only one of the five major goals. I couldn't care less for "Concrete strategies for publicity, vision, marketing and software branding will be hammered out." Well, actually I care, or rather, I'm concerned... This is the last thing KDE needs - more publicity and marketing for a distro that gives it such a bad reputation.

Makes more sense than it being two of the major goals, don't you think?

Now, the bug reports will be forwarded directly to kde upstream, which allows kde to fix more bugs. That's good news for everyone that cares.

I agree that Kubuntu somewhat dropped the ball on Karmic. Sound is totally broken in Kubuntu side. I'd like Kubuntu to take a "pulseaudio or bust" sound strategy, that is, an application that didn't work with pulseaudio would remove kubuntu-desktop metapackage (or have sound output disabled completely by a patch).

If that is what they are going to do. I'd rather say the opposite, it will make the situation even worse.

It will increase the amount of useless Kubuntu specific bugs in the upstream bugtracker, draining resources from KDE developers and bugsquad. Currently there are already to many of those bugs in the KDE bugzilla.
