Hello everyone,
great to see work on Oneiric is already getting started. :)I still have some ideas, here are a few:
-Replace Gimp with Mtpaint/rgbpaint or ShotwellGimp just takes a lot of space and is too advanced for the average user.I think following Ubuntu by picking Shotwell is the best idea.
-Replace Vinagre with RemminaRemmina is smaller and supports more protocols. :)
-Replace Gcalctool with GalculatorGalculator is 1 mb smaller and they are both easy to use.
I hope you guys like my ideas and share yours as well. :)

> Artwork and Themes - improve what we have in Xubuntu 11.04. This is a
> great wallpaper and theme. Perhaps we can do some fine-tuning.
> midori - This does have the capability to import bookmarks now. I do
> not know how well it works with multiple tabs.
> pastebinit - even though this is a command line application, we
> recommend it in #xubuntu. It would be great to have it already
> installed for the user.
> pavucontrol - Audio controls for pulse audio. Installation of this
> resolves about 90% of the user audio/sound issues.
> This is by no means a complete list of things we have to do. It is
