  I've been quite busy with family stuff and work today, but thanks for the
replies. I'll take a look over at Lubuntu Software Center, and see if there
are any issues I could see myself tackling. I've never used Bazaar or the
Launchpad issue trackers, so there will be some learning curve involved.

Best regards,

dale: I'm not sure what lubuntu specific stuff is java, maybe just find
some general bugs. As mentioned above, the lubuntu software centre is
python, so any bugfixes for that would be great
