Hi Yousuf,

I volunteer to help with setting up the bridge. I am a not a part of the 
Xubuntu team though.

Have used Xubuntu and Xfce for a couple of years, and appreciate all the 
work put into it.
Worked as a system administration for a couple of years. The bridge you 
posted looks fine (havent used it). The number of platforms supported 
are wide.

Let me know if its ok and how to take it forward.

Kind regards,
