I'm pleased to see you step forward and continue where the former core
members of the Xubuntu development team have had to step aside due to
other commitments.  I anticipate you continuing a fine job with Xubuntu
Gutsy and newer releases in this regard.

That said, while you have demonstrated a solid grasp of Xubuntu
packaging issues, I'm interested in how your gaining ~ubuntu-core-dev LP
team membership will affect your efforts in Ubuntu as a whole.  To
paraphrase Matt Zimmerman's comment at my own core-dev application to
the TB, one should not apply for ~ubuntu-core-dev membership solely to
gain upload privileges - there are numerous sponsors (e.g.,
~ubuntu-main-sponsors LP team members) who can help there.  I fully
understand that your main (both in the Ubuntu archive component and
resource-wise) thrust will focus on Xubuntu, but what plans do you have
for issues that affect Ubuntu and its derivatives?  (Privileges to
upload to the entire Ubuntu archive carry a tremendous responsibility
and sense of purpose.)
