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  page on our website.
Our development IRC channel #xubuntu-devel  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
 on the Freenode IRC network
