I had thought that Launchpad intended to be this: a great, decentralised P2P bug network. Projects everywhere would run their own copy of Launchpad and the days of manually chasing bugs upstream and downstream would be over! Talk about progress!
Alas, Launchpad is still totally proprietary, will continue to be proprietary, and Canonical is trying to convince people to just host their own projects on Canonical servers. Blah.
I still use Ubuntu even though Launchpad has been a bitter disappointment and Canonical the company doesn't appear to believe in open source methodologies. I'm conflicted. It's a shame Ubuntu works so well. :)
