Are you referring to those posted on the list, or some other things?

>From my point of view, the best way to proceed is to give the Xubuntu
project feedback first before working on your own remix. If the
developers agree, these changes can be made to Xubuntu directly; this
way more people can benefit from them instead of them being in a
custom-built remix.

That being said, there is absolutely no promises on getting any changes
in, at least not without discussion. To raise discussion, you can either
post proposals to this list, or even better, post the proposals to this
list and after that, appear in a Xubuntu community meeting. (The next
meeting is tomorrow though that might be a bit tight – you'd want people
to have some time to read a mail and get familiar with the changes
you're proposing.)

Whether you chose to build your own remix whatsoever or gather some
proposals for Xubuntu, I'm sure other people will be more or less able
to help you on the issues you're having, including the one already
posted. In addition to this list, I'd try our development IRC channel
#xubuntu-devel on Freenode; it's rather active most days.

It's okay. Just remember to use a different subject line for every
separate discussion and people will be able to follow the threads they
are interested in – and ignore the threads they are not interested in,
or where they can't help.
