Hi Lars,

Long time, no see :)

There was a very recent discussion about some important issue on the
website: https://lists.launchpad.net/lubuntu-comms/msg00702.html

The issue you brought could be less important from the current mistakes on
the website but definitely what you are talking about is yet another issue
that raise a big Q mark.


You need to know that Lubuntu Team has no control over its own website. Why
I fail to understand the logic behind this, this is a reality that I had to
live with for 2 years now.

I am not aware of any package on Launchpad that is related to the website.

Xubuntu Team for example has one: https://bugs.launchpad.net/xubuntu-website

I am not sure if we do have that?
