I agree as well.

I think Brian brings up some very good points that I think we need to look
at. Xubuntu is an official "flavor" of Ubuntu and so our website needs to be
professional or we'll damage the Ubuntu and Canonical image.

Also, I don't think we need to replicate every effort Ubuntu has. The only
difference between the flavours is the desktop environment and the
applications they users are most likely going to be using which leaves a lot
of core stuff the same - both community wise and technically-wise (haha, I'm
making up words here). For example, the fridge could be used as much for the
Ubuntu community as the Xubuntu community... do you get where I'm coming

Anyhow, I'm being pestered to hurry up and go buy pizza for the folks but
I'll be sure to elaborate more on this later.

P.S. I have a lot of experience with drupal (and the same for apache, mysql,
etc.) - so can I help out with the development of the website and stuff?
