You are correct; this list should be reserved for issues directly related
to the Trinity project.  For people having issues with the Ubuntu
distribution of Trinity, an older mailing list is available here;

That list is specifically for general discussion about the Ubuntu Trinity
releases and underlying userspace issues, such as Trinity integration with
Ubuntu specific components and packages.

Also, if you are having problems with a kernel component or driver, such
as the one Kate mentioned earlier, I would suggest the general Ubuntu
forums at ; they will generally respond much
faster to this sort of problem than the members on any of the Trinity
