A word or few about near future

Thanks again everybody for choosing me as the new Xubuntu Project Lead.

I will be taking a break from FOSS sometime soon, and unless you want to 
meet each other just for fun or to work with ongoing business, I will 
not be keeping community meetings until I've come back from my short 
break. This will mean the next meetings are on the week after UDS.

If you have thought of keeping a break from FOSS too, beginning of the 
cycle is a good time. Enjoy your time off! (Sorry Lionel, this doesn't 
apply to you... ;))

I'm proposing to add Simon Steinbeiß [1] in our Artwork team, as well as 
the Xubuntu Team. The rationale behind this is continued contribution to 
Xubuntu, via desktop themes and many many more things. If somebody has 
anything to say about this, please do it before Friday, 4th of November. 
Unless nobody wants to discuss this further, Simon will be added to the 
team. Otherwise, it will be discussed and voted on the next community 

We are getting closer to the publishing of the new website [2]. Once 
it's out, I'd like to publish a MINIMUM of one article per month in the 
blog. Subjects should be everything about Xubuntu, from quick lists of 
reviews about Xubuntu in the last month to development, artwork, ISO 
testing, community... Anything that relates to Xubuntu, at least 
somehow. Please feel free to tell about ideas for articles, and feel 
free, but not obligated, to start writing drafts.

While it is very recommended, it is not a "hard requirement" to be a 
Ubuntu member to be able to get your article on the blog. We will sort 
out on how to proceed with this, but since we've done it before [3], I 
don't think there is any real obstacles.

Thanks, let's keep in touch via email and IRC.

Your new Project Lead,
Pasi Lallinaho
