Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu Dapper Drake Flight CD3 has been released. I haven't received the email on ubuntu-devel yet, but the .iso files appear to be up (Ubuntu | Kubuntu). Improvements in this release include an updated installer CD boot splash, X11R7, GNOME 2.13.4, improved and simplified menus, new default desktop panel configuration, some new applications such as XChat-GNOME, a faster live CD, live CD persistence, and more. In addition to software improvements, Launchpad is now officially open for business for all bug tracking.

I think there is value in having a central point of focus and direction, which can act as a broad funnel that is accommodating and accessible to many users.

Bugzilla is already capability of using XML-RPC to interoperate between already open source bug tracking systems which is almost always bugzilla. I dont understand ubuntu's decision here at all.

https://wiki.launchpad.canonical.com/WhatIsTheLaunchpad

after reading about launchpad a little, you'll understand that it is not just about shared bug tracking. it is about increasing productivity by making it easier for more people to contribute in a managed fashion. this includes the ability to branch code (bazaar-ng), translate into native languages (rosetta), and track patches, branches, and bugs across multiple distros (malone). bugzilla is great for bug tracking, but launchpad is something much more.
