I am in the process of testing the newly built package of xubuntu-docs.
Nice work, all contributors! There are some changes that would be good
to get in if it'snot too late. I know string freeze has passed. One issue
is the it still says there's no graphical configuration for adding keyboard layouts.
There is a new tab in the keyboard settings app added by Gauvain, but maybe
he has been too quiet about it and it got unnoticed :)

The other is it still mentions setting up CUPS via the web interface ot gnome-cups-manager.
I guess that's ok if system-config-printer is not reliable enough, even thoug it has imporved
considerably since edgy. A new feature which will go in in the next few days is support for
a notification icon for prin jobs so it will be very similar to gnome-cups-manager.

The easy add/remove program (gnome-app-install) is not mentioned as an alternative AFAICS,
again not too bad, people can discover it :)

Again thanks for all contributors, and sorry for not being more responsive with packaging it.
And please provide feedback about the package when it gets in the archive, I hope I included
all that is needed from svn.
