Let's see you're willing to use Launchpad simply because you don't want to even though that's what calibre uses and what every calibre developer uses. This tells me two things. 1) You're not able to take any level of criticism because you won't make even the slightest attempt to work within calibre's development guidelines. 2) You're contributions no matter how brilliant are going to be more trouble then they're worth.
