If you have coding/packaging related ideas please bring them to the
xubuntu-devel list. Writing them in the wiki is ok too and point us there.

Ubuntu artwork was used as a basis for what is now in xubuntu-artwork,
the thing is it does not seem to be done in the same open manner as
ubuntu artwork is. People mostly mail me directly (true for non-artwork
stuff as well) instead of collaborating on irc/wiki/ml with eachother
and the ubuntu doc and artwork teams. This way to most people this looks
like a very inactive front and indeed it is a lot less active than it
would be with if it was more public. This is my fault too, I should be
more pushing sometimes :)
