Hello Pontus,

and welcome to the list!

As Dave pointed out already, there are always tasks we need help with
and which whoever can work on. Testing is a great way to begin because
it helps you create a better understanding of the system and how things

To find the full list of areas where you can contribute to, see the Get
Involved [1] page on our website.

Our development IRC channel #xubuntu-devel [2] is active every day, and
is a great place to get to know other people who contribute to Xubuntu -
and get help with any problems and questions that might arise when doing
testing or something else.

Thanks for your interest and welcome again - waiting to see your
contributions :)
