Xubuntu is still a part of the Ubuntu community and uses the Ubuntu
software base. I fail to understand how the desision to not use the
hardware enablement stack would communicate that we're leaving the

I have double-checked the mailing list archives, and also fail to see

If this thread inspired any of you to help Xubuntu out with the release
notes or anything else, you are most welcome to join us. More details
can be found at the Get Involved section of our website [2].
