Xubuntu documentation & the new website

Hello all,

In thinking about the Xubuntu documentation lately, I was considering how
both Ubuntu and Kubuntu keep their official documentation up as part of the
Ubuntu.com and Kubuntu.com websites, respectively.  [1] & [2] I would
recommend this for Xubuntu as part of the setup of the updated website.

Additionally, would we consider unofficial community docs (ala the Ubuntu
Community help pages [3])?  Such a section would invite participation from
Xubuntu bloggers and hackers (and hacker/bloggers) who are already writing
up these how-to's on their blogs.  Contributions might include items like
putting compiz-fusion on Xubuntu, and other helpful tips.  These
contributions may eventually wind up as part of the official docs.

I expect some discussion about the community docs idea - I certainly
wouldn't want to duplicate material from the unofficial ubuntu docs' wiki
pages.  I hope that the official docs could be placed up as part of the
website, though.

I invite your comments.  Thanks,

Jim
