status of xubuntu docs - keep committing despite string freeze?

I'm sorry to say that the status of Xubuntu docs is not really 
satisfactory at the moment, despite the string freeze having passed already.

Remaining Problems

- There is at least one chapter which has not yet been adapted to 
Xubuntu at all (music / video / photos.. ).

- The problem about the yelp-links is not fixed yet.

- Some parts of the Ubuntu docs deal with GNOME panel setup and that 
kind of thing (I believe this is the included upstream documentation - 
right?). As of now, we don't have anything comparable for Xfce. Some 
parts of the old desktop guide (still available in SVN) might be used 
for this, but someone needs to step up and include it into the currents 

- We need a new frontpage with links to the subchapters (Ubuntu doc has 
a special yelp front page for this.)

Question + Call

Would it be alright with the DocTeam if we keep committing for a few 
more days? The docs are really not good enough yet to be shipped. At the 
same time I'd like to call on all those who have contributed to Xubuntu 
docs so far to join forces and get the above points ironed out until the 
end of the week (or so).
