The idea and concept of a council has been brought up, but it was discussed

shows up to the meetings regularly and/or those who regularly help the
xubuntu community sitting in a council position. This just didn't seem to be
a good use of human resources.

On the concept of a ... i wouldn't at all be opposed to
this but I don't think Kubuntu has their own planet, I believe everyone just
posts on and Cody has started posting there in order to
raise Xubuntu awareness around "the planet". We might need to check into the
politics behind hosting our own "planet" and make sure we aren't stepping on
anyone toes by hosting our own.

Just my two cents .... :)
