ACKing KompoZer brokenness in Ubuntu 8.10

Okay, for everyone out there who has been frustratingly reporting that KompoZer is broken in various ways in Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex", I just wanted to say, I know. That said, I do not know why or how to fix it. So, here's a little background and explanation of where things stand.

That warm fuzzy (patched) feeling

So I noticed this morning both on my laptop at home and in the logs on servers at work that there had been a BIND update that came down the pipe, and being a core system service, was a bit curious what the deal was, but didn't look into it right away. Now, later in the day I'm going through the tech / security news of the day, and found this article providing a bit of background, and was able to confirm that it was related via USN 622-1.

Interviewed on NPR

So like we did for 7.10, with the 8.04 release of Ubuntu the Minnesota (USA) LoCo gathered contact information for various local media outlets, and I sent them all a note about the release, Ubuntu itself, and our release party. As a result, I actually got a response, from Jon Gordon of National Public Radio (NPR).

Talking to representatives

So I went to my Senate District's convention on Saturday, and while I was there had a chance to talk to a couple of politicians about OpenDocument in governement and open source in government and schools. While the responses were fairly predictable given the environment, I thought I'd share some of my observations.
