Hello Brian,

I'm sorry if it appeared like I didn't care people sending feedback. 
Ultimately, you only said "daily ISO" in the original message, which 
could be the daily ISO for 14.04 too. Again, sorry if you felt like the 
feedback was not welcome.

That said, when testing development releases, bugs you find should be 
filed in Launchpad and test results (generally) submitted to the 
ISO/package testing trackers [1]. Testers submitting there is the only 
way we can relatively reasonably track how much testing our products get.

Problems with booting are definitely bugs/reports we want in the 
tracker, so others running the same tests (with Xubuntu or other 
flavors) can see the tests failing as well. As you can understand, the 
communication works much more efficiently this way since everybody is 
using the trackers (but not everybody is reading all development mailing 

If you need more information about testing and reporting, feel free to 
ask on the mailing list (or the IRC channel #xubuntu-devel on Freenode).
