If people want to start looking at this - I'm happy to help where I can 
- if nothing more than helping with the admin side of testcases.

If people want to have some sort of irc meeting about that, I'd be happy 
to come along, I know where it can be a pain and how Xubuntu dealt with 
it. I'd do my best to be about for you all

No way I could think about lead - I have Xubuntu to drag through the 
next 6 months QA wise
