At the moment, there are no such plans. The current UbuntuTV code is
demo / proof of concept. It's only meant to work on 11.10 as of this
point, and we're working hard to develop upon that.

Probably in a separate one, even, but yes NM integration is a must.

You mean a meta-package? As I wrote before, it's not meant to run on
post-11.10, nor is it in the state to be packaged in the Ubuntu

Lightdm will likely not be used, there will only be one username on
UbuntuTV, but a theme for plymouth - sure, we'll need it at some point.

No, XBMC won't be required for UbuntuTV.

Not that I know of.

I don't know of any.

Just made-up temporary names.

I would hold back a bit, we're in the process of rearchitecting some of
this stuff, in part due to Unity-2D (on which the current codebase is
based) being decommissioned.

I'll report back with any news,
