Ali is absolutely correct, you need to open a blueprint.
There are so many things to do before April, the only way you can insure
it will be done, is by doing it.  Everyone already has tasks, and some
projects are a huge undertaking.  I don't know if anyone that works for
Canonical is involved in Lubuntu (in other words everyone works on this
stuff because we enjoy it, and want to help other people)
I know the packages I make are because I want to.  The bugs I fix are
because I want the fix.

If you want, I can help you package it, but you will need to pick some
sounds, and find out how they are accessed from LXDE events.  That is
something I don't know.  Someone here might be able to help, but I know
someone from LXDE would know (like PC Man, for sure).

A community package of sounds would be nice.  Maybe have users submit
sounds for different system events, and vote on the best ones, or
something.  LMMS is awesome for creating sound effects (use
fluid-soundfont-gm & fluid-soundfont-gs those have some awesome sounds
for the Soundfont).
If you can't make sounds, and don't want to organize a community sound
project go to freesound.org and find some.
Of course if you don't want to work on packaging or any aspect of it, it
very likely will not get done.  I know I have many other projects beside
my new involvement here, so I am sure the others here have other
projects, as well as jobs, and family and possibly school.
