I think you are right, in that it should not be on that page. I think we
(and I mean we) might of jumped a little too quickly there.

IMO upubuntu.com is, from what I can ascertain, acting in a way which
the project should not, necessarily, object to as there seems no real
harm, however one which personally I am not comfortable with. I rather
think in this case they certainly should of sought the project's
approval first.

With an eye to location on our site, as is, I would not put a link on
this page[1], it makes it seem too much a recommended and sanctioned
distribution IMO. 

I would not be against treating it as a short term news item, and
perhaps in whatever manner the group decides to treat sites offering
CD(DVD) images or disks.
