My personal objectives will be rather simple: work on XFCE (I won't say more
about this till I have something actually done, though) and work on Exaile –
there are a few things lacking, still a few improvements that can be done in
Exaile, and there is something I wanted to implement for quite some time now
(*blinks at Pasi*). I don't intend to do anything specifically ubuntu
related, for a number of reasons. I also still intend to be doing noise on
the channel, don't worry about that. :)
