Waou Vincent !

Yeah we re doing the same, but we are working for Xubuntu, to make it
good and not to make it an Ubuntu clone... He is modfying seeds...

There were still 4 monthes of the development the changes we made were
for testing the applications on a wide user field. There would of
course have been announcements when things would have been sure. Like
Jani did when he put gnome-screensaver, file-roller... You remeber
this ? This really open development ? The supr all-mighty Jani
speaking to the community....

And remember that if you want gnome, it's stability, you can get an
Ubuntu for the same price as a Xubuntu :) Like I've done on one of my
two computers...

So please do not compare things that are not comparable. WHen I see a
bug I report it upstream, and work to have it fixed. When Jani sees a
bug, he modifies the seeds to put the gnome equivalent (a bit
caricatural, but not that far from reality).

I thank you for maintaining the Xubuntu site, but it has nothing to do
with the matter. I'll still help users on the forums too. But I'll not
contribute like I've done recently, to see the work I've done with
others destroyed in 1 minute by a super modify of seeds.
