Hey guys, some comments about that transition:

* Before starting a transition that impacts others, please check on #ubuntu-desktop if it's ok to start it

* get things ready before uploading, don't upload and then start working out your way through rdepends

* could somebody explain that changelog part:

" * Dropped changes:
    - 02_refuse_to_break_GL_compositors.patch:
      + Doesn't appear to be needed any more"

why is it not needed?

* please file merge requests, pulling from a ppa to manually copy your diff in the vcs is not the way we should deal with those uploads:
- it's harder to review
- it's more work for the sponsors
- it doesn't use the normal sponsoring process
