The https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Artwork/Lucid wikipage contains all
material which I have at least somewhat been preparing for Lucid.

I kindly ask you not to link to my sandbox server (anything on emonk.fi)
any more, unless I tell you it's okay. I will take the Xubuntu stuff
offline in the future, so if you specifically need something, feel free
to (and please do!) download the files while they still are online.
Thanks for your understanding.
