With Twitter we wouldn't need that. With other feeds I'm not sure
filtering is worth it.

That's possible. We did gather some screenshots for magazine articles we
were writing some time again, those should be fine to use here as well.

Thanks for the interest! If you are familiar with IRC, join us at
#xubuntu-devel on Freenode (you can use the Freenode webchat [1]). That
would be the easiest way to get started and discuss about the details.

Ultimately (whether you joined us on IRC or not), put up a detailed
proposal of what you would like to see; where in the site, how to gather
the data, etc. Then send it back to this list and we can proceed with it.

If you have any questions or need help with anything, feel free to ask
the team and we'll sort it out together.
