How / When to make suggestions to contribute to Xubuntu 14.04

Greetings All,

I got to thinking about the smaller scale of Ubuntu's contributing power to Xfce than I previously had envisioned... is perhaps the better place to work with and to make suggestions directly to Xfce 
and not to Xubuntu? Such as to get the GUI Samba share browsing UI working as it used to with Gnome 2 in Ubuntu 10.04.

One thing that definitely is in-scope for suggesting to Xubuntu... the LiveCD GUI installer... could you please add ntfs as a valid partition type when installing to a blank hard drive, and not only 
selectively have it show up as a possibility when the installer detects an existing copy of Windows on the drive? I am using Linux to deploy Windows in a dual-boot configuration. Thus it would be 
helpful to be able to set up the NTFS partition's mount points during installation. Where would I officially make such a request? Thank you.
