Hi Jon,

Wow!  That is outstanding news, indeed :)

During the next week I will be continuing my work on a "Contribute to
Ubuntu Studio" wiki page so that will hopefully be a repository of tasks
needing to be done.  But I can tell you some of the big items we are
working on currently.

We have several big items we are working on:
 * building, submitting to REVU, and getting approved the -lowlatency
kernel so we can use it by default in the image
 * transitioning from the alternate installation image to a live dvd
 * also transition to Edubuntu's method of selection software during
installation (GUI equivalent of alternate's tasksel)

And then we have some more mundane tasks:
 * updating the lightdm theme (probably stealing what ubuntu has done)
 * updating the theme (very similar to what xubuntu has done)
 * updating the documentation found in help.ubuntu.com
 * updating the current website (lot's of people already working on this
one though)

I'm excited that you want to help Ubuntu Studio and look forward to hearing
back from you :)
