Please present your evidence. Who found it and reported it before the launchpad bug documented in the launchpad link in Ted's own blog posting? And do please provide source.
The lengths to which some people will go to avoid crediting Ubuntu is simply amazing. I've never seen such a notable sour grapes response in the community as the reactions I see today from advocates of less popular distros. Most of the really notable ones seem to come from the Fedora camp, where the perceived threat level is apparently particularly high. But then, Fedora has always had more than its fair share of spiteful advocates.
