Hey Diarmuid,

help and interest is always appreciated.
As current artwork-lead I can tell you that I'd be happy if more people contributed to this side of Xubuntu, but I know that many other areas can use your help as well. So feel free to step in wherever you feel comfortable.
The most direct way of getting in touch with the xubuntu-dev community is via irc, simply join and then #xubuntu-devel. Of course there's also this mailinglist, which is not a bad way to get started. If you decide you want to work on a specific issue you can also try to contact the maintainer/developer directly, depending on what ways of communication he/she has enabled e.g. via launchpad.

We're a rather small-ish team at the moment (and in fact always were), so really, any help is appreciated.

All the best
