Xubuntu new package request

Dear Xubuntu developers:


I have been using Debian and later Xubuntu since 1999 so I am quite familiar 
with the OS in general.

To make it easier for people still relying on dial-up connections I have 
discovered the 
http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/panel-plugins/xfce4-modemlights-plugin 
"Modem Lights" plugin and have compiled it from source which I find is 
very easy way for even novice users to simply connect and disconnect from 
the internet.  It isn't fancy but elegant much like Xubuntu in its 
simplicity.

I have created a .deb package and would like to contribute it so that more 
users could benefit from this handy applet, without having to download source 
packages and what not.  I have read the Ubuntu web site and it appears I need 
to send it to two (2) Ubuntu Developers in order to get it approved.  I figured 
since you the Xubuntu Developers, two of you might be able to help?


I am not huge into programming but figured others could benefit from my 
contribution.  If you can be of any help please let me know.

Respectfully yours,

John Kerr Anderson
