To avoid conflict of interest[0], team members have typically steered
clear of editing the Wikipedia page about Xubuntu, in spite of some
factual errors. I would encourage users like yourself to take on this
task if you feel the need, but I do ask that you keep in mind that
it's not an advertising site for us and we want to keep the integrity
of the wikipedia process intact :)

This is an auto-generated list from YouTube, details on "Topic" pages here:

So it's not really something anyone can control.

If we had volunteers to produce these videos it would be great, but
unfortunately we haven't had much luck in recruiting folks to do this.
I encourage anyone to follow-up with this if they think it's something
they can work on.

We're actually in the process of updating this rather stale, boring
page. Thanks for the feedback!
