Hi Samuele,

Welcome. If you'd like to help with translations, you can work on the
user-docs and the installer slides. I'd recommend starting with the
installer slides as there are only 15 strings to translate.

Translations have to be approved by the italian translations group, so it
would be good to contact them on their mailing list and introduce yourself
there, which should help get your contributions merged faster, as you can
contact them directly to request to look over your work.

When it comes to filing bugs, many bugs would need to be filled upstream
with xfce, while other bugs would be xubuntu specific bugs and filed on
launchpad. If you are not sure, you can join us on IRC.
