Ubuntu and GNOME Power Manager

Okay, after my last outburst I've talked in depth with Jorge on irc (from Ubuntu) about my situation and described to him what happened. He's reassured me that mistakes were made, and that he's now there to stop stuff like this from happening again. This is good.

Ted Gould has just started in the Ubuntu desktop team and is now responsible for upstream<->ubuntu patches for gnome-power-manager. It's good to sort this out as Ted seems like a cool guy.

So, now I feel a bit happier. Back to PackageKit hacking…
