As one of the lurkers I'd be interested to ask questions :-)

Questions I could come up with would be:

1- Why are you involved in Xubuntu Development?
2- Why Xubuntu and not <xyz>?
3- What's your greatest frustration in this Xubuntu-business?
4- What keeps you going in spite of 3?
5- What is the greater challenge? A) Getting people to know about 
Xubuntu B) Getting people to use Xubuntu? C) Getting people to Test 
Xubuntu? D) Getting people to code for Xubuntu? E) Getting people to 
design for Xubuntu F) keeping up good relations with 
up-stream/downstream people?
6- What's Xubuntu's default wall paper going to look like in A) 2 B) 4 
C) 8 D) 16 year's time?
7- A) Shakespeare or B) Kafka? (Only one correct answer of course)
8- Why smoothies? Why?
