I never wrote that it was. However you'd better read it as background
information, how else are you ever going to know what you're doing?

I would suppose that a page with "KernelTeam" in the url would be
maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.
If you look at the page history, you will see that it was created by Leann
Ogasawara, who works at Canonical as a Quality Assurance Engineer and who
is a member of the Canonical Kernel team & the Ubuntu Kernel Uploaders.
The top 3 other people that made the most contributions (in changed bytes,
not in edit counts) are all members of the Ubuntu Kernel Team.
So yeah, I consider that pretty darn official, as far as officiality goes
in any Open Source project.
The least one can say is that those two pages *should* contain the correct
information, and that in theory if you find something else on the web that
conflicts, it means that those other sites are probably wrong or mistaken.
Please take all of this with an extra grain of halite. :)
