Due to a lack of response time, the Xubuntu Hugday will be held on
Thursday, 2008-10-02. This is the scheduled BugDay for Ubuntu, so let's
make it a really special Hugday. I will be posting the listings on
Tuesday of 118 bugs I hope to get triaged during this event. 

As the first Xubuntu Hugday, this is really exciting to have it happen.
I realize this is the Intrepid Beta release day, and that makes it all
the more special.
