Yes I think it should go on the site. Oliver (one of the Xfld devs who
mailed me about this)
corrected me saying that it's only a liveCD. I did not try it myself so
don't know about this.
It is possible they do not ship ubiquity at all with their package selection
being different.
As for being based on Xubuntu/Ubuntu it is a bit ambiguous as they use the
xfce packages
I assume but not all the apps which also make up xubuntu. So the correct
thing to say is they
are based on  Ubuntu (repositories) and use some Xubuntu packages, like
Mepis I think which is
KDE but not Kubuntu.
Anyway the mail I forwarded says xubuntu and their site ubuntu.
