hi christopher,

yes, the Xubuntu Desktop Guide is being worked on (by me), but it 
advances only slowly and could use your help!

to get started, go to this wiki page:

this has some information on how to get started. feel free to ask if you 
have any questions.


ps: this kind of discussion usually belongs on our mailing list - that's 
why i sent the reply there, too. if you want to help, you will probably 
want to subscribe to the mailing list.
