Hi Cody,

This sounds fine for me, i hope to have some packages ready for the next 
release, and go through the process of getting into xubuntu-dev. On this 
moment i am working on two new software systems.

Just to make sure the rest of the community doest get upset, I strongly 
advice you to put the hole process of xubuntu-dev and the surrounding 
issues on a good wiki page. This will create more hard needed 
transparency in the xubuntu community. (I read your post on ubuntu-devel)

Kind regards,
