Hey everyone,

while I've already semi-officially announced that I'll be running during the last team meeting, here goes my formal application for Xubuntu Project Lead.

Looking forward to an exciting election!

PS: Just so you know, if I'm not elected, I'll naturally still continue to contribute as Artwork Lead. ;)
