Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for the response. It was the Get Involved page that suggested
that I introduce my talents onto this mailing list so I did so.

As I said after the tl;dr I am interested in pretty much everything
other than programming, I just need a guide as to how I can do more
really, I'm already on the BugSquad and Ubuntu Testing teams and I
report bugs when I see them - I just think that I could be doing more.

Sadly I can't help with ISO testing because I only have small CDs
which the ISOs won't fit on and I have no USBs atm (and the laptop
which I'm running Xubuntu on won't let me boot from anything other
than CD really anyway). I only managed to get Xubuntu 14.04 on my
laptop by a very long upgrade path:

[Lubuntu 12.04 32-bit non-PAE minimal -> Install fake-pae -> Upgrade
to 12.10 -> Upgrade to 13.04 -> Upgrade to 13.10 -> Install Xubuntu
meta-package + Remove Lubuntu meta-package -> Upgrade to 14.04] Now I
can just do [Lubuntu 12.04 non-PAE minimal -> 14.04 -> Install Xubuntu
meta + Remove Lubuntu meta] but my current upgrade path is the former
one.

I have also helped a little on Ask Ubuntu but I've often found that I
simply can't ask the questions for whatever reason - too specific most
of the time and so I only have about 250 rep or so. Maybe I should get
involved with documentation? I will ask people on #xubuntu-devel when
I can but help here may also be helpful.

Thanks,
Adam
