Let me quickly correct one (important detail), the correct line for pulling the bazaar branch (item 2 in the list for testing) is
bzr branch lp:~knome/ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu/xubuntu-natty

Other than that I can only say that I like the concept of Ubuntu's slideshow as well (what Pasi called "descriptive screenshots") and repeat what Pasi already said: input and feedback is very welcome!
