That’s an incorrect conclusion, I fear. Canonical’s viewpoint that I somehow 
steer all of KDE as some sort of benevolent dictator has nothing to do with 
our marketing of “KDE is people”. I won’t get into the why’s and how’s of 
that, but trust me: they are unrelated.

I don’t want one company having arrived at the wrong conclusions some time ago

No kicking is necessary; everyone in Plasma feels this way. That’s why we have 
routinely invited people from other projects (inc Canonical, btw) to Tokamaks, 
why we have reached out to them on the QML and other Qt mailing lists, why we 
implemented the units API, why KWin devs have been talking with RazorQt, why 
when we looked at a KDM replacement we invited Canonical (who showed up and 
participated very positively) as well as RazorQt, Hawaii and others.
