Hello to the Ubuntu-Mate team
I've just read the release notes.
It seems to me that building something is a goal for which it is quite easy (in relative terms!) to generate enthusiasm and motivation.
... however, maintaining something over time and working away at tracking down problems and solving them is another situation altogether...
And here we are - Ubuntu-Mate 19.10 - which has paid attention to many problems and brought some new solutions in view of changing circumstances...
So I did something in response to this dedication and application... I became a patreon.
Quite simply, thank you - to the Ubuntu-Mate team.
