That's a good point, thanks for pointing it out Ted!

Since Xubuntu is technically part of the Ubuntu Documentation team, I
think we tend to assume people will use the documentation there, ie:

But I guess it's not very discoverable if you're not familiar with the
community, and since Ubuntu switched over from DocBook to Mallard some
of the instructions are no longer accurate for Xubuntu.

We should probably work with the Ubuntu Documentation team to fragment
this page a bit so we can <<include>> portions that are applicable to
us and have our own, similar page.
