Comment 40 for bug 23810

This is low priority from the point of view of Ububtu, which distributes Linux+GNU+a bunch o free software all together.

I understand it has low priority as it is not affecting other applications nor blocking the use of the computer.

I agree it should be very very high priority for those who really write and maintain it, not for those who distribute it.

Imagine you are distributing a pack of applications. You can't give high priority to the bugs that already came with them, there are bugs introduced by yourself when packing things and blocking bugs to look first.

Complaining about this being the default mail client is something else, I guess many will agree with you. Fortunately you are not forced to stick to Evolution, Empathy, etc, to actually use Gnome. There are far better replacements out there.
